Suggested Exercise Plan
Suggested exercise plan
- 1 exercise session per day for 15-25 minutes
NO EXERCISE IN HIGH HEAT or COLD WEATHER
Things To Note
Bulldog breeds have shorter nostrils and windpipes. This, plus their heavy frame, makes it more likely for this dog to have breathing problems in cold or hot weather and makes the possibility of heatstroke a real problem. Easy and moderate exercise is good. Just because this breed requires little active exercise does NOT mean you can neglect exercise. Some activity but necessary for good body weight and healthy heart, lung, and joint functions.
