How Much Exercise Does a French Bulldog Need?
Thinking to adopt a French Bulldog and need to know how much exercise does a French Bulldog need?
According to a prominent dog association, French Bulldogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that require daily exercise.
The French Bulldog needs to be taken on a daily walk, where the dog is made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as instinct tells a dog the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human. Simply running around a large yard is not going to satisfy their migration instinct. Take care in hot weather. They love to run and play and can play for hours if you let them. Some have higher energy levels than others.
Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run about in all day so that they can expend all that pent-up energy. Although, there are other breeds that are on the opposite end of the spectrum. If you do not have the time or energy to play with your pet for many hours a day, then there are specific breeds ideal for your life-style.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They usually tend to be relatively aloof, but their independent nature means it will not mind when you commit for work in the morning. They can get over 70 pounds in weight, but they make excellent snuggle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred mainly as a lapdog and buddy, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shines at its original job. The breed is delicate, affectionate and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy dogs that are gentle and loving towards their families. Although they require little exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus tend to not be specifically fond of going outside. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight often maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are restricted to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are quite inactive. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
