Lower Exercise Demand

This is a list of breeds that are considered to have a lower demand for exercise (a lower energy level). This does not mean they do not need exercise. It simply means that they can be satisfied with less exercise than some of the other breeds. All dogs instinctually need and will enjoy a nice walk with their owners. Throwing a ball or letting your dog run free at a dog park for exercise is great, but it still does not fulfill the dog’s need for a walk. It is very important that you take your dog for 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. This is a must for any dog in order to keep its mind balanced. The better shape your canine friend is in, the healthier he will be, mentally and physically. Please keep in mind that within every litter pups will have different energy levels. Therefore, just because a breed is on this list does not mean every dog of that breed will automatically have a lower energy level. This list is just giving general recommendations. If your dog is racing around the house like a spaz, it is a sure sign he or she needs to go out on more walks. Running around the inside of your house or in your backyard does not satisfy a canine's instinct to migrate. Have you walked your dog today?

French Bulldogs may have a lower exercise demand than some other breeds, but they still need exercise and will enjoy a good daily run. Keep in mind that ALL dogs need exercise, just some more than others. This breed will run around for hours playing if you give it the chance.
