Could anyone tell me how far my 4 month old jack russel puppy can run?

I recently started jogging with him for short distances, 1-3 km or walking/sprinting intervals

This weekend I took him out 'running' with my bike, going rather slowly though, and was gona stop when he started panting. However, he never began to show any signs of tiredness, never panting, resisting or anything else, and I ended up stopping after 20 km

Then I googled how far he should run and I saw that puppies shouldnt be running anything close to these distances, not because of tiredness but rather because its bad for their growth

However, I cant seem to find any estimates on what is a suitable distance for him to run

tl;dr I would like advice/estimates on how far a jack russel puppy can run for ages 4-20 months

A FOUR MONTH OLD PUPPY SHOULD NOT BE GOING FOR RUNS OR JOGS. A DOG'S GROWTH PLATES NEED TO BE CLOSED BEFORE THEY GO RUNNING OR YOU RISK CAUSING YOUR DOG PERMANENT DAMAGE. THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IS ZERO MILES

Talk to your vet. 8 months of age is the general rule of thumb, but they will be able to tell you for sure. Seriously do NOT take a puppy that little for jogs.

I see, thank you for your reply

Are there any limits on walking distances?

>>2166171
Very light if you want to be careful. 15 to 20 minutes a day or so, twice a day? No real hard answer beyond be careful. Low/lower impact exercises won't be as harmful though. Just wait until the dog is done growing before serious and sternious exercise.

Once your vet says he is good, then build him up slowly. Lots of dogs will push themselves really hard to please you and can hurt themselves on a run. Take it easy and just build up.

My 8 week old puppy whines all the time. I've only had him for 4 days and if I am not right next to him in the pen, or hes sleeping, he whines. I can be right outside the pen and he will still do it.

I have tried to ignore it (He keeps it up for hours), rewarding him for being quiet, and my vet gave me a pheromone collar, but nothing has seemed to work.

I know that whining means 3 things, bored, food, or bathroom. However it can be after a very long walk, i let him run around the house and play with him, and he has food and water in his pen, and still, he...

I'd say more personal attention. Petting, belly rubs, etc. Or mix it up with his playtime doing something like swimming.

I have been giving him belly rubs and lots of pets, but so far that hasn't seemed to help, hopefully the little guy likes the water.

Pls no fanboyism. I always disregard answers which begin with praising the first animal and then calling the other weak/coward cause all it tells me is which animal you happen to like more. It happens in every animal "vs" debate and it's always bullshit.

I guess it would depend on where each one came from.

Both live in a wide range of habitats, so individuals probably differ in size, weight, and temperament.

Probably gemmate but it could be muscaria or pantherina.

eating it will make you sick. Probably won't kill you but you'll wish you were dead.

if you boil it first it may not do anything to you. No guarantees tho.

The humane society told me he was a husky shepherd mix, but he looks more lab than shepherd in my opinion.

Alright, I cannot get rid of these fucks for the life of me. My parameters are good and I've tried two 4 day blackouts with hydrogen peroxide at 1.5x doses, to no avail. It hasn't killed any of my livestock so it's benign for the most part, but it's unpleasing to the eye.

>inb4 diatoms/cyano

I've dealt with both of these in the past with ease.
>>
>>2165232
they can be a bitch.
Personally I just wait them out or get animals that eat them. Usually if you've got dyno there's a lack of pods. Some fresh rock or sand with a good batch of pods might help.

Other than that try to get 0 nitrates/phosphates. Carbon dosing and solid skimming discipline might help. They often go away on their own for no apparent reason.
>>
>>2165232
a couple other suggestions in case you aren't doing them already-
run a UV sterilizer at an effective kill dose

dose vodka

fluidized bed or canister filter. Yes, they're nitrate factories but they also consume nutrients and compete with other nastier critters. A biofilter and a turf scrubber are an effective combination for starving out dino and cyano.

Passive filter carbon until it clears up.

Water changes, make sure your RO/DI is still working right.

Why don't people keep rabbits in large (500+ sq feet) outdoor paddocks or pens? It seems like it'd be lower maintenance and make the rabbits a lot happier. It'd also be pretty easy to predator proof the fence. Is there something I'm overlooking here, or are people just lazy? I was going to try and build a large pen for meat rabbits, but I'm a little weary because that nobody else does it.
Pic related, the only thing I could find resembling what I'm thinking of.

I have about 104 rabbits currentlly the reason most dont put large cages is because rabbits will just keep humping all the time even guy on guy which could lead to broken bunnys
>>
Rabbits dig, hump and fight. You would also need to have a roof over it due to animals that can climb or fly into the pen. The fence would need to be far into the ground because they are excellent diggers.

When I had meat rabbits(50 or so) they had the typical diy hutches without wire bottoms and we would rotate them in an out of a dog kennel so they had more space to run around. We would power wash the hutches and kennel so they weren't living in fitth or getting bumble foot from shitty wire bottoms. I think it was easier than small wire and wood hutches since that...

That's a lot of fucking rabbits.
What do you mean by broken? Most of them wouldn't live more than 4 months anyway, and I'm sure I could handle putting down a few injured bunnies a year.

I already need to dig proof about 200 square feet of chicken fence, so I wouldn't mind doing a couple hundred more. I haven't had any problems with birds of prey in my area because they're too small to take anything, but raccoons/similar...

Can humans go into heat, or anything similar? When for a certain period of time, a couple of weeks literally everyone just seems like... seriously more attractive? Even when they know they normally would never go for those sorts of people?
Like there's a strange current in the air and falling in love feels so very easy, you'd blink and you'd miss it. And the whole thing would be so subtle, it'd take years to even realize there is a pattern to all this?

Long shot, but anyone know what's wrong with my dog?

>rescued him about 10 months ago
>he had untreated arthritis, ticks/patchy fur, uncut nails

>Now:
>When lying on the floor, he will suddenly jump up and look back at where he was, like something bit him. I give him flea meds monthly.

>He has recently been chewing on my wall. This wouldn't seem that strange a behavioral thing for a young dog or one that has undergone a life change recently, but he is neither of those. Just wondering if it's related

>He sometimes won't stop panting, no matter how cool i keep my apt or how much water he has available to him

>took him to the emergency room the other day when he was having a panting fit, they did some blood work and said maybe a UTI but nothing concrete.

He's getting along in age, and I'm certainly far from independently wealthy, but it's not like I'm looking for an excuse to put him down. I just want him to be comfortable
