I think it's fine except for the lack of a space between the comma and 'with' and capitalization. The very comma itself seemed no good to me at first glance, but I think it's OK if it's function is to denote a pause in speech. I am not a teacher though and can be wrong.

Walk the dog but not too fast. Is this what you mean, that you shouldn't make the dog walk too fast?

If you say 'Walk the dog but don't rush.', it might be understood to mean that you don't have to do it right now.

Is 'with no rush' ungrammatical? You seem to completely reject it, as you don't even refer to it.

No native speaker would say that sentence.

It's not colloquial.
If a woman wants to get rid of her husband for an hour or so, she might say:
[Go and] walk the dog, and take your time.
[Go and] walk the dog, and don't rush.
I think this is a more likely reason not to rush, rather than a fear of over-exerting the dog.
