Just Like Us, Bulldogs Need Exercise

MSN Hotmail - Message: "Why Exercise?
Dogs need exercise as much as people do for optimal health. Ensuring that your dog gets enough exercise helps to keep your dog slim and healthy and helps to prevent unwanted behavior, which keeps your dog safe and happy.
A slim dog is a healthy dog. Balancing good nutrition with regular exercise helps reduce your pet's risk of obesity.
An active dog is a happy dog. An active dog is less likely to misbehave than a bored dog. Daily activities keep your dog happy and entertained, which helps keep him or her from nosing around in potentially dangerous items
or situations. Exercise also allows your dog to release restless energy in a constructive, rather than destructive, manner, which can keep you happy, too."

That is so true. My little 7 months old English Bulldog loves his walks and even swims and enjoys playing in the park. It keeps him mentally as well as physically healthy and his weight in check as well as being a well socialized dog I can take anywhere. Just beware, if you live in hot climates, as I do (Florida) as bulldogs are prone to heat exhaustion and heat stroke, so make sure you offer the exercising in the cooler morning and evening hours and always have plenty of water with you when taking him out.
