Question How much exercise can Elmo do with his patella problems?

Hello
Just wondering-I'm waiting to hear back from the breeder for her advice but am wondering how much exercise is safe for wee Elmo with his knee problem?
I know that exercise strengthens the knee muscles but I don't want to cause him harm by overawalking him .
Does anybody what level of activity is safe?
thanks
Kati and Elmox

I'd like to know what others think on this as well, lots of people have experienced this so hopefully they'll chime in.

Has your vet given you any indication on how bad his knee is? Shadow has LP in her knees and her right one is worse (we're looking into surgery next year). i found since giving her glucosamine and joint supplements she's a lot more active and happier to run around and play. I always watch her on walks and she will usually indicate to me when she's tired and i carry her the rest of the way. She usually does really well for about 30 minutes. On our recent visit to the vet he said that her condition has remained the same in the last year, no worse.
