Bulldogs are often referred too as lazy breeds - however if you've owned up, you'll know this is far from the truth. They may like to sleep, but when they are awake they love to get the most out of their time, and over the years our bulldogs have always loved to play fetch.
The flat face of your bulldog does mean that they will have difficulties with breathing. Due to their face being compressed, air doesn’t flow as freely as a bulldog breathes. This means that we don’t recommend any water play with your bulldog or dog toys that are going to cause your bulldog to become overexerted. It's important that when playing fetch with your bulldog, that you ensure it doesn't become overexerted and that the game is played at a steady pace. If your bulldog isn't quite up for a game of fetch, then puzzle dog toys can help keep your bulldog occupied and stimulated without vigorous exercise.
Playing fetch with your bulldog can help in many different ways, bulldogs often suffer from weight related problems and playing fetch is a great way to keep them engaged in physical activities and a brilliant way to help keep their weight under control.
