An interesting article about age appropriate exercise related to growth plates in puppies, achrondroplasics aren’t included specifically but it’s worth a read.

    I think the Puppy Culture exercise chart is a great resource to which breeders can direct their puppy people:

    https://www.puppyculture.com/exercise-chart.html

    The Kennel Club’s advice is, “A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e. 15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc.”

    Ref: http://www.thekennelclub.org.uk/getting-a-dog-or-puppy/general-advice-about-caring-for-your-new-puppy-or-dog/puppy-and-dog-walking/

    In line with the KC’s advice of “up to twice a day”, the Lifetime Health Record (LHR) has been updated:
