Can I let a puppy run free with a 13-year-old dog during a long walk?

Going Off Leash

Though it's tempting to walk your puppy off leash, unless you are in an enclosed area designated for dogs, an off leash area for dogs, or on your own property, it is generally not advisable to walk your dog off the leash. Even in less urban areas where your puppy is away from the danger of traffic, it is always a possibility that your dog could suddenly bolt due to loud noises, wildlife, or something to give chase to. Use your best judgment when walking with your puppy and account for any unforeseeable instances with you, your puppy, and those around you.
