We walk our five month old Siberian mix, Skylar, about 1.2-1.8 miles a day depending on the time we have. That’s 3/5 mile in the moring and 3/5 or more in the afternoon. If she doesn’t get walked, there is no other form of major exercise since she’s an inside dog.
The other day, we noticed her limping. It appears to be one of her front legs. We are considering taking her in for an X-ray tomorrow if the vet is open. Skylar doesn’t seem to be in pain, but dogs do hide pain well. I’m really worried she could be developing hip dysplasia or elbow dysplasia, but I’m not sure.
We walk her around our neighborhood. She walks in the grass a lot. Yes, I have been examiningher paws. From what I can tell, there isn’t anything stuck in them.

where you do walk her, on roads in the woods, there are plently of things that could have gotten stuck between her toes or cut her. check her feet for any injuries, but you are right, you should take her to the vet to make sure everything is ok. I don’t think you can ever walk a husky too far
