Thread: Do your bullies go on walks?

  1. #1

    Default Do your bullies go on walks?

    Emmitt is 4 months old and is earning the reputation of being the laziest dog ever.
    My 10 year old pug goes on 2 long walks a day. Emmitt, not so much. He'd rather wait in the yard until we get back.

    Is this normal? If this is a normal trait I guess I'll quit trying to force the issue. Or can I turn him into a walking pup?

    Not sure about everyone elses bully but Samson does enjoy walks. He gets tired after 30-45 minutes. I would never expect him to make it past 45 minutes so normally we just go to the local park and walk around until he is tired and starts walking behind me LOL Then we go home and its always in that 30-45 min range. And this is never high speed walking, just cruising, alot of stopping and exploring.

    Silva loves her walks when she was a puppy she would walk about a block or so then sit and would not move so we would have to carry her. We just kept practicing. Now she walks about 30 minutes or so depending on the weather. We have all 4 seasons here it, can be so hot to crazy cold to rainy and windy!

    Jozi is only 9 week sold. But we do go
    on a short walk each evening. We walk
    to the end of the block and back. Its only
    about 4 houses down. But she seems to
    like it and doesn't put up much of a fuss
    about going.

    Here in Montana its very cold durring the winter so I put my bullies on the treadmill They love it and I walk them on it for 20 mins per day. I wasnt sure at first how they would like it but they really enjoy it. Durring the summer we take short walks after dinner.

    Unfortunately my area isn't condusive for safe walks. We have insane 4 wheelers, go kart, and dirt bike riders and to walk is to be in the road with no where to really go if they are coming.

    I usually have my dogs on a leash when I take them to the bathroom outside because my yard is not fenced. Periodically, though I shouldn't, I let them run around, they do stay near me but I get nervous.

    Bottom line is Bear does crazy piggy runs around the yard and pees on everything, i can't let him do it too much because he takes a long time to calm down afterwards.

    Ok, so maybe I'll keep working with him. When we harness him up we have to drag him down the street. As soon as we turn back towards the house he starts walking at a normal pace just to get back home.

    @Emmitt E I forgot to add when Samson was a pup he didn't like to walk, it was probably that he didn't like being leashed. Just takes time, he grew out of it in a month or 2, and getting used to being on the leash.

    oh..oh.. Chester is SO bad with walks. We don't walk him right now because it is so cold outside. But this past summer..oh my goodness.. he was BAD, BAD about walking. I had to keep treats in my pocket and give him one every few houses to keep going. I hope he is better this coming spring.. he's so cute that it's fun to walk him and show him off But he is a STINKER with walking
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    I don't take Gertie and Ida out on walks, they get plenty of exercise running around our back yard. They're both really good on a leash tho. My granddaughter takes them for a walk to go get our mail sometimes, and they're on a leash when we go to the vet or Petsmart. They seem to like walking on a leash okay.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Vegas loves to walk but about 20 min. tops, by then he is panting and dragging his feet. He walks very well, I do not walk him every day it depends on the weather here in Fl. this summer we rarely walked because even in the evenings it would be high 80's, now it is winter and for instance today it was 55* out and we did a 20 min. walk, I love to walk him because he is out like a light when we get back home!!

    Not sure, don't do much of that. Lola and Brodie hang out and run around in the yard, but Brodie (who is almost 4 months) is pretty active. Sometimes drives me insane all the running around because he loves doing that in the house with my 3 yeard old bullie. We have not started training Brodie on the leash yet, that will be fun...Lola sure was. Love your bullies name and he such a cutie! Love the pic in your signature.
