    Thanks! This was informative for me - I still adhered to the "fast growth" theory of HD. The research reviewed in this article found:

    1. Puppies born in the spring or summer and at breeders who lived on a farm or small holding, had a lower risk of developing HD.

    2. After about eight weeks, daily exercise in parks up until the age of three months reduced the risk of HD

    3. daily use of steps until the age of three months increased the risk.

    Overall, it would appear that daily exercise out in gently undulating terrain up until the age of three months gives a good prognosis when it comes to preventing HD.
