|2 of mine (maggie and wiggles) have just as much energy as my golden, they like to walk but they love to run and chase things even more...Milo is the opposite, he hates going for walks and is very lazy.
All of mine love to run and try and catch things (yes even Milo!) so I use a "cat wand" toy (without catnip of course) to let them chase and catch something, we do this for about 1 hour a day. We also take them for a 1/2 mile walk every morning and evening (Milo protests after 15 mins, he is very lazy).
You cannot forget that they are hounds, dont be surprised that if you cut a walk short or they get bored they will dig or find something to do. If for some reason have to cut a walk short mine tend to bring me presents when they come in from the yard, so far in the years I have had them Wiggles has brought me 1 baby bunny Maggie has brought me 2 birds, and Milo is just to slow to catch anything.
They tend to be energetic little dogs, my Maggie does agility and loves it but if you decide to do something like that be careful with the jumping due to their backs. Milo is the perfect example of a dog who does not fit the normal, he is lazy and, other than the cat wand, he would rather lay around all day then do anything that involves him spending energy.
