Thread: Hello family!!

  1. #1

    Default Hello family!!

    I hope everyone is doing very well with Summer closing down on us.

    and sorry I haven't been active very much lately, been busy with crazy stuffs

    Dukey is doing fine... he is hitting almost 8 months mark now
    and I'm looking to neuter him soon haha

    he starting pee with his leg up now too hahah (outside when walking of course)

    well, I have a question that I want to ask all you about
    because I've noticed Duke's sudden decrease in his walking lengths

    before, being an energetic bulldog too, i took him over 30 min walk (over 6 blocks easy) almost everyday if not every other day.

    However, Just recently, if we just go over a block, he get tired or lazy or I don't know but he just stops and sits down on his belly flat out
    and won't move LOL as if he's like "OK NO MORE"

    this is where he is JUST starting to pant and opening his mouth to breathe.

    so I've been calculating his distance for few days now, and yeah pretty much he's only doing a block now.
    although he lies down often right in front of our door lol

    So i'm just curious. is this the natural thing for bulldogs?? is my dog getting lazy and tired??

    I dont' think it has so much to do with his tiresome or the heat, because where I live it's very breezy and cool ( i live close to the beach)

    And I want to ask you fellow bulldoggers this question too

    HOW LONG IS YOUR DOGGIE WALK??

    TIME FRAME? DISTANCE FRAME?

    I don't think he is sick or anything... he plays fine in the house too. ??

    Gracie hasn't ever done that with us. The most we have tried is about 6 blocks. Since that is a change in his behavior. Perhaps have him checked to be sure walking isn't causing pain would be my only suggestion.

    two of my bulldogs are good for that long walk, and the other three, well, it takes us forever to get around the block. they're all built a little different. the three young'ens that are 8 month old, well only one of them kept the puppy energy while the other two did not. we don't do the walks in the hot weather. hope this helps

    Hi! Welcome back! Jake is almost the exact same age as your guy! He loves to walk and is very active. I haven't noticed a decrease in energy level. I agree with @LariP..I would ask a vet because it's a relatively sudden change. Is heat a factor? They really can't take any hot temperatures...good luck..but I would make sure all is right physically with him!Duh! Just saw where you addressed the heat question..sorry..I need sleep!
