A lot depends on the age, health, fitness of your Bulldog and the temperature, humidity. Ruggles (6.5 yrs. old) walks 2 miles or more early in the morning when it is still cool outside. We walk where there are creeks, rivers, lakes he can get in and get drinks. Ruggles has a healthy, thick fur coat and is able to go on walks when it is cold in the winter. His walk is an important highlight of his day!
