I never thought about a correlation between hormones and walking, but I can certainly tell you our first puppy was not interested in walking off our 60x120 property for months. She would not want to go even 5 houses away. She would resist the whole way. The only way to walk her was to take her for a drive, so she did not know where home was, and then walk. Of course, we gave her opportunities, but did not force her to walk when she did not want to. A puppy can get lots of exercise just playing at home. She did out grow that behaviour, and now loves exploring.

We had her spayed before her first heat. We did not notice dramatic changes in attitudes after the surgery.
