Bulldogs are the heart and soul of sofa friends. They love the sofa more than life itself and usually spend most of their time just sleeping it up. The challenge here is that they fail to get the exercise their body needs and thus suffer.
Because bulldogs are not the most cooperative dog, you need to think outside the box to get them to exercise. You have to generally get both of you off the sofa and out for a walk. You need to start this habit as soon as possible. The younger the dog is, the more they will respond to the training.
The important thing is not to do too much too fast; this will not get you a healthier dog, and it may get you a dead dog.
This comes from his structure. He has a body designed for sitting around and not for running. The lungs of a bulldog are also made in such a manner as to lead to the old panting habit if you push too hard.
Running with that bulldog is not a good idea under normal conditions. He will get out of breath and this will hinder his health, not make it better. The stress involved in running is more than most bulldogs can really handle.
You should give some attention to the heat if you are planning a walk. If it is too hot your poor dog will overheat and this, too, is a leading cause of heart attacks.
Hot weather is hard on you and your dog. Try going in the early morning or evening when the heat is not so intense. If your bulldog gets overheated, he may even have a heart attack.
To have a healthy bulldog takes a lot from you. You need to think about proper nutrition. The bulldog must eat well if he is going to do well and live long.
Bulldogs are a great dog, but they need to be handled in such a way that they get the best care for them. They are not just a dog. They have specific structures and health needs. All it takes is a little research and you will find that you can have a healthy bulldog.
