Default how long does everyone walk their chi?

I have recently stated walking my chis ( & basset too ) & I was wondering how long everyone walks their chi. Chili will walk forever if you let him but tader is done after a short walk Im not sure that he is getting enough exercise with a tiny walk so should I push him to go farther or back off? He is 6 years old so I dont wanna over work him but Im trying to get him to lose a few extra pounds.

I neve have walked Gizmo because I am a worry-freak. I keep thinking something will get stuck in his paw, or he will smell feces from a dog that has worms or worse...or what if a bigger dog attacks him...

So you see...I don't...LOL
But I have a HUGE fenced in yard that I chase him around in and he does laps until he flops over with his tongue hanging out.

I would like to start walking him since I am on a "lose the first year marriage weight diet" hehehe...but I too wonder how far he'd go? Hubby suggested for me to bring his sling so if he gets tired or hot, cuz it's tooo darn hot here, I could put him in there..

I used to take Carl on a short 10 minute walk when we first started our walks. But now we either go on a 15-20 minute walk, or a 30 minute walk, depending on the weather and how tired he is!
Sometimes even on the shorter walk he'll lay down in the grass, and I'll have to carry him for a little lol!
Off topic but...Carl's so funny too, there's two houses with dogs that we refuses to walk past. He lays down and I have to carry him past their house to protect the little wimp (One dog is a tiny 2 lb puppy that Carl is really scared of...)

Ive never really walked my dogs either.(shame on me!!) but I decided that it would be good for them & me & Id also like to setting a good example for my son with doing activities like walking & such with him. I got them all harnesses (the chis have puppias & the basset has a walmart harness) they really seem to enjoy the walks for the most part but I just didnt know how far a chi could go.

I know that Chili & Go-Go could hold up to a 20-30 min walk but should I walk Tader less since hes 6 yrs old or can he do the long walk even though he doesnt want to?

Oh I forgot to mention that Carl and I go for a walk every day.
I guess that's why he's so muscular!!
I used to never go on walks/exercise so Carl has helped me become more active!
