Over exercising pups

Recommended Posts

Hi we have a 6 month old male border collie, I'm looking for advice off people who have had border collies from pups till old age, we are worried about over exercising the pup as nothing tires him out, our current schedule is half an hour a day of fetch, some say this is to much as he is sprinting for the ball, he gets longer walks at weekend maybe an hour of off leash walking in woods, beach ect. He has had sprained his front leg 3 times  and back leg once mostly from zoomies and slipping on decking or jumping and landing awkwardly, we are just really worried what long term affects this will have on his joints. So much conflicting stuff on net so would like to hear from people first hand.
