Hi All,

I am very new to bringing up puppies. I got butters home when he was 12 weeks old and he had only 1 vaccination by then. That week I got him his 2nd shot and am scheduled for my 3rd on Jan 30th.
Now, he needs some kind of an exercise because the vet said that we cannot take him out without his 3rd vaccination. I am playing fetch and tug with him but seems like that is not enough. HE gets the Zoomies almost everyday.
I even try and take him out to the yard for his potty but instead of playing he ends up putting the stones and leaves in his mouth. I say leave and then he wants to come back into the house.
I would like to know if there is anyway I can make him expand his energy out in the yard without the fear of him putting things in his mouth. Or can I take him for a walk/run in the neighborhood? I know dog parks and beaches are out of question.
All you suggestions/advices are most welcome.

Thanks

@KAthyy Thank you so much for the reply. I took him for a 10 min loose leash walk today in my backyard. I also made him go up and down the stairs about 7 times. I am planning to follow this schedule for the next few days. 10 min walk in the morning. 10 min walk in the noon and 10 min walk in the evening and then stairs for about 7 times and a little fetch and tug. I am happy as long as he is happy:). I hope this is not a lot of exercise.
