High Energy Dog Breeds
Keeping up with high-energy dog breeds
High-energy dog breeds make for fun exercise and play buddies - and can also be great “workers” if their energy is channelled into a productive task.
Within any breed, there is some variability in temperament. However, high-energy dogs tend to be:
Jack Russell terriers
English springer spaniels
These breeds were bred for a specific “job” and want to be busy, so if their exercise and mental stimulation requirements aren’t met, they can develop undesirable behaviours, such as hyperactivity, escape tendencies, anxiety or destructiveness.
