A good rule of thumb is a ratio of five minutes exercise per month of age (up to twice a day) until the puppy is fully grown, i.e. 15 minutes (up to twice a day) when three months old, 20 minutes when four months old etc. Once they are fully grown, they can go out for much longer.
Similarly, it is asked, what should I expect from my 7 month old puppy?
Depending on the pup, sometimes around 6 or 7 months old a previously well-mannered puppy can turn into a terror. House-training accidents, chewing, barking, the bossing around of other pets, and generally unruly behaviors might start to surface.
Subsequently, question is, why does my 7 month old puppy hump?
Puppies don't reach puberty until they're six to eight months old, so humping is non-sexual play behaviour. So if your puppy or dog is greeting you at the door with a friendly leg-hump, they're probably just glad to see you. It may also happen if your puppy is scared at the dog park.
Do Puppies sleep a lot during a growth spurt?

Is 7 months old still a puppy?
