Welcome to the forums! How much did your pup weigh when you got him? Did he have worms or digestion problems that adjusted after you got him. 5 lbs is quite a bit to gain in a week. How much are you feeding him, and what food? Usually male puppies gain about 10 lbs a month on average. How much does he weigh now? He may be catching up in weight if he was underweight as a young puppy.?

As for exercise...he needs to go for walks more often then twice per week. He should be out and about exploring the world and being socialized. Usually walks should be short and sweet...but more often. Playing in the yard till he lays down and says he has enough ...puppies that age adjust themselves to stop when they get tired.
