Topic - young dogs on the hill

Auld mick - on 29 Nov 2012
Hi all

Have a wee beagle lad (eddie) hes 6mths old and fit as !
Lots of conflicting views on when you can start them on the hills.
I am led to believe a beagle goes through the rapid growth phase before 6 mths (bigger dogs are older) so some say its okay to start em on easy stuff from then on. Others look at the sky and huff saying "18mths and not before".
I tried to stick to the 5 mins per month of life to 6 mths but he could walk forever...sniffing etc.
Now hes 6mths I wanted to introduce him gently to the hills.
What are your experiences with your dogs ?
When did you start them ?
Any help tips etc much appreciated.
As a wee starter for ten eddie and I went for a walk up Dumyat from sherrifmuir yesterday........he thinks hes a huskie ! he loved it.
5km round trip 212 m of ascent=55mins.
