I am a very active person and we started to walk our little shih tzu 10 mins in the am and 10 mins in the pm.
Is this too much for him? How long should he be walking for? I read that too much exercise can hurt his developing joints.

Watch the pup, if he is fine with the short period your good.

If the pup flops out, laying there exhausted, it's to much.
If the pup is still running around a little ball of energy, then try adding 5 mins.

At the age your pup is it most likely sleeps a lot, so try judging the pups reactions to the walks.

Also at 11 weeks has your pup had it's shots needed to ensure there is no chance of getting sick?
