My 12 wk old spoo loves to walk on leash. We go slow and he gets a chance to look around, watch birds, stop when he desires etc. Is there a maximum distance / number of times I can walk him if it is very easy? It does not seem to tire him out compared to running in the yard. His behavior is great on leash so far.

As long as you let him stop and let him rest if he wants. The only problem I see is habituating him to being on walks so often. Some days take him out once. Some days not at all.

I agree with Michigan Gal. If you walk everyday several times a day with a pup then the pattern is set for life. Training/thinking is a better way to wear a pup/dog out and it builds your bond!
