The 'breeds you used to want' thread has prompted me to ask about activity levels in the gundog group. I really like the Brittany, and the field ESS but I'm not sure if I could provide the best home for their activity levels. The Vizsla and GSPs I have met are very, very active and probably much too much for me? My dogs do a lot of training and backyard play with me daily, roughly an hour a day spread out during the day. My chi x gets roughly 30 - 45 minutes of walks or runs on a long line 4 - 5 days a week. My stafford Grace, gets walked at least twice a week, but she is older and slowing down. A car ride is enough to get her excited and she has never been a high energy dog. She is happy with her daily zoomie sessions in the backyard with Abby. My grandmother's whippet goes for runs/walks with me 4 - 5 days a week. My own two dogs also visit my friend's property for an offlead run twice a week. I am virtually exercising dogs every day, but sometimes it's not the same dog if that makes sense. I worry that some of the gundogs need more than I can realistically offer. All of mine would cope fine if I was sick in bed and couldn't move for a couple of days. I don't want a dog that I'd need to get someone in for just because I was knocked out with the flu lol (it'd be different if I broke my leg and needed help long-term... I'd definitely get someone in to help with the dogs). Are there any gundogs that would suit my lifestyle? I am a great believer now in doing all I possibly can to get the best possible fit for me as an owner and just stacking the odds in my favour of getting a dog that is right for me and is just in bliss living with me. I do want to train in obedience and agility and do a lot of trick training in general, so I enjoy doing stuff with my dogs. Actually, you can suggest any breeds if you like, I'm always open to suggestions.
