How Much Exercise Does a Rottweiler Dog Need?
Wanting to adopt a Rottweiler and want to know how much exercise does a Rottweiler Dog need?
According to a prominent dog association, Rottweiler Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need daily exercise.
The Rottweiler needs plenty of exercise. You can't give these robust dogs too much work or exercise; they thrive on it. They need to be taken on a daily walk or jog. Running in the woods and in open country makes them very happy and they have no desire to wander from you. Swimming or running beside a bicycle are perfect activities for this dog and it also loves retrieving a ball.
Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run about in all day so that they can use up all that pent-up energy. However, there are various other breeds that are on the opposite 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 particular breeds perfect for your lifestyle.
Here are several dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They often 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 great snuggle companions.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred primarily as a lapdog and buddy, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel succeeds at its original job. The breed is gentle, caring and would much prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy canines that are soft and passionate towards their loved ones. Although they require small exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus usually tend to not be particularly keen on going outdoors. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight normally maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are constrained to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are quite less active. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
Confident, bold, alert and imposing, the Rottweiler is a popular choice for its ability to protect. As befitting its self-assured nature, it tends to be headstrong and stubborn and is often domineering. It is reserved, often wary, toward strangers. It may be overly protective if it perceives that its family is being threatened, and it may also attempt to "herd" children. This is a powerful breed that needs socialization, consistent training and daily exercise to be the best it can be — a loyal family member and guardian.
