How Much Exercise Does a Dalmatian Dog Need?
Thinking to adopt a Dalmatian and need to know how much exercise does a Dalmatian Dog need?
According to a prominent dog association, Dalmatian Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need daily exercise.
This is a very energetic dog with enormous stamina. They need to be taken on daily, long, brisk walks or jogs where the dog is made to heel beside or behind the human holding the lead. Never in front, as instinct tells a dog that the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human. In addition, it needs plenty of opportunity to run, preferably off the leash in a safe area. If these dogs are allowed to get bored, and are not walked or jogged daily, they can become destructive and start to display a wide array of behavioral problems. They love to run!
Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run about in all day so that they can exhaust all that pent-up energy. Although, there are various other breeds that are on the reverse end of the spectrum. If you do not have enough time or energy to play with your pet for many hours a day, then there are certain breeds perfect for your life-style.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency to be rather aloof, but their independent nature means it will not mind when you leave for work in the morning. They can get over 70 pounds in weight, but they make wonderful cuddle companions.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred primarily as a lapdog and friend, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel succeeds at its original job. The breed is gentle, caring and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy pet dogs that are delicate and tender towards their families. Although they require little bit of exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus often tend to not be especially keen on going outside. Many times, they will get plenty of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight typically maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are confined to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are relatively less active. One walk a day is all you need to make sure these dogs get a good workout.
The Dalmatian makes a good playmate for children, although it may be a little too rambunctious for smaller children. Dalmatians get along well with other dogs or household pets, though it is should be socialized as a puppy if possible. The Dalmatian is naturally fond of humans and horses. The Dalmatian can be watchful around strangers.
