How much exercise should a 13 week old pup need?

I currently take my 13 week old JRT on 2 walks a day for 30 mins each. She's not a morning dog and would prefer to stay in her bed for a bit longer in the mornings, once out eventually she resigns herself to the fact that we are going out. Evenings she is really up for a walk and loves to play. Should I leave the morning one for now?

I would skip the morning one, let her sleep and just play with her alittle, when she's ready. JRT's are not lacking in spunk or activity. They will play all day if you let them. Do you work and put her in a kennel box when you leave? Or do you stay home? If you do work I would suggest letting her run around the house while you are getting ready for work. If she wants to sleep let her. Just make sure she relieves herself before you leave.
You can always make up for the lost playtime on the weekends.
Thirteen weeks is still kinda young, but she will get more active and then start slowing down a little bit after 2 - 4 years old depending on the JRT,(male or female).
Have a nice day and GOD bless all the JRT's and their forever families,
Stef, Belgium, JRT lover forever!!!!
