    Default How far do you walk your bully ?

    Now that the weather is getting better in the UK I am taking diesel on longer walks,
    He's happily snoring beside the fireplace after a good walk. How far or how long do you take you bully on a normal walk ?

    it's still snowy and gross here but today I was able to bring her for a walk. We only went around the block but she had a LOT of play time before the walk so I wasnt going to push her too far. Maybe when its warmer too I would bring her farther.

    I was able to take a decent walk today too!
    Normally we do two half-hour walks a day. Sometimes longer, sometimes not. Hoping to get back on that soon.

    1-2 blocks, although I walk a few miles to work every day, I'm afraid to overheat Lola. So it's only down the street to the elementary school and back.

    Usually it's around the block but on the weekends we walk to one of the two parks that we have by us.

    Chunk is unusually athletic for a bully, so our normal walk is about 2 miles, but we have done up to 6 with a few water breaks!!

    It's been -20 degrees here in Toronto Canada, so we haven't gone out much lately. It was only -5 today, so we went around the block which was around 15 minutes…I was dragging him back…I find he's become really lazy over the winter, and we'll have to work up a little on the endurance!

    I need to move to the part of UK ur from its still rubbish here in wet and windy Wales with constant flood or storm warnings!

    I walk meeko around the block at the moment in this weather (i know that means nothing but its about 10/15mins) and on nicer days il take him to the park or the courts near to my home so he can go off lead and have a good run around with my skin baby. I cant let him off the lead unless im in a closed in space i panic he wont come back or he will see another dog and gains selective hearing. Plus its hard work keeping ur eyes on a skin baby and furr baby lol x

    In Southern California the mornings and evening are really cool and i try to take the dogs for long walks at that time (otherwise their potty walks are just around the block).

    I need to be cautious because all my dogs are punched in faces (Boston Terrier/French Bulldog- 51 lbs, Boston Terrier/Pug - 20 lbs, EB - 63 lbs) If one goes down I'm screwed.

    I like to take them on long walks if they can manage every day if it is cool enough outside. I bring a backpack with cloth travel bowls and a bottle of water. I know it seems overboard but my terriers have so much energy and my EB needs to lose a bit if weight.

    The furthest we have gone is 4 miles (with 2 15 min sit on bench breaks).

    We've also taken the dogs hiking before but the weather must be cool. Curly my EB especially likes hiking - I think it's because we let him walk at his own pace.

    But i need to be very cautious with overheating and their breathing. If any of them start panting heavy we turn around bad go back home (after resting and a water break) I also feel their ears a lot. I noticed when they start to overheat their ears will get warmed than normal. I have no idea if this is a scientific way to check temperature but in my heat it gives me a accurate reading of what's going on lol.

    Anyhow, with all that said, long walks = hydration and rest during the walks for it to be successful. Avoid over exertion, dehydration and overheating
