Each Buddy Pokemon in Pokemon Go has a different distance it must be walked before it will find a candy. Unfortunately, you have to swap them in and out as your buddy to see how far you need to walk them. If you're already in the process of walking a buddy, then swapping will make you lose your progress.

Don't do that.

I've rounded up the distances in this nice little reference guide. The Pokemon are listed in alphabetical order so they are easier to find:
