I have a 10 week old Malinois, I was trying to find out if there was an age that I could start running with her but could not find anything with facts behind it, just opinions. I am not looking at anything more than 2-3 miles, around 30-25 minutes max.

I don't recommend doing any running with your Malinois before age 1. I tried it when mine was 8-9 months and he developed a limp twice. I gave him a few months off and he does fine now (1.5 years). If you have the area available I suggest just letting her run off the leash so he goes at his own pace. And teach her to heel first! Otherwise she will pull your arm off.

Our mal has been running 3 miles a day since 6 months. Loves to run. Keep nails trimmed. Fast growing bones sometimes cause pain. Slow down, let mal set pace that is comfortable for him.
