    Ours isn't fond of walks unless we're going somewhere new and fun, so for our daily walks, we just don't even try to go more than a block when it's warm and/or humid. He's pretty much restricted to A/C then - sometimes we'll take him to the park to run if there's a lake to swim in or it's raining. He's pretty active though, so when it's cold (50s or lower), he'll walk for 2-3 miles if we're out somewhere fun or new.

    Only walk a bully as far as you can carry Fezzik.

But that's just our two.
    Sounds like my Jewelie Girl. Cute response.

We also stop for water breaks and rest every so often when he tells me to and when I tell him to. I haven't noticed any changes in gait or limping. When he was a puppy, he would sit and refuse to go, but now he loves them and will usually sit and refuse to go when he wants a break and then start up again after a little petting and rest. I usually base how far we go on his energy within the house or yard.

    He is typically between 49-53lbs. I have recently reduced his food to 2 cups a day so his weight has been fluctuating slightly but he maintains a good waistline. His waist is skinnier when he stands, but he moves too much to get a picture of him like that.

    Here are some pictures ranging from today to a couple of months ago.

    I don't think my vet is as experienced with bullies as I would like, but I haven't really found one within a good driving distance.

    Replied to this but it wouldn't post so here goes again

    Fezzik looks great and since he's only ONE & still growing (and active too)
    I wouldn't cut back on his 1 & 1/2 cup AM & PM until he's 3 yrs old and then
    re-evaluate at that point. Bulldogs mature slowly and continue growing until
    3 yrs old. First year they grow up (taller) in 2nd year they grow out (widen) as
    in, their heads drop & become broader & heavier, their chest widens & deepens.
    As long as he's active and looks like this, he's doing great!

    What do you breeders suggest, seeing these pics & this info?

    @Davidh.. @bullmama...


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Just watch and err on the side of caution. My Schultz loves standing and absorbing heat on hot and humid days and I'm the one who has to call time out back to the a/c....
    It's 85 and sunny today and I stopped to caution a young woman today who was walking 2 black labs (who were panting and lagging) ... I tried to be as nice as possible (offered to drive all 3 home) and suggested it's probably not a great time for a walk.... She passed on the ride

    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am ~ author unknown

    Right now, my Bully, Maximus does not leave the house to go out for walks because he tore both of his ACL's. He is still limping some 6-months after the incident. However, I did have an incident outdoors with him a few years ago. We took him to the park
    it was a nice day out, sunny and mild. However, for Maximus, it was a little to warm for him and he collapsed of Heat Stroke.
    As a result, we had to rush him home and throw him in the bathtub to cool him down. I learned from that experience, and now
    will not take Maximus (or my Pug) outdoors if the temperature is above 70-degrees. Both my Bulldog and my Pug are indoor
    breeds and this time of year, they stay indoors with Air conditioning.
