Just wondering...we were told to exercise him a lot and play with him a lot. We did that for the 1st 3 days after we adopted him and he was literally stumbling when he left his crate. He seemed exhausted. The vet said to stop our hour long walks with him because these dogs aren't built for long distance walking.
I walk him for 10 - 15 minutes in the morning, depending on the heat (neither of us can survive over 74 degrees). Then we have a playtime in the morning and in the afternoon. This varies on his energy level from 5-10 minutes to 30. When he is tired, he just stops playing.
in the evening my husband takes him for a 1/2 hour walk. The rest of the time, he pretty much sleeps, unless it is mealtime, this wakes him up.
Is it normal for a dog to sleep this much?
He seems healthy and is very muscular and got a clean bill of health at the vets.
Thanks for any input.
