Free-lance bulldogs are a delightful hybrid of French bulldogs and bulldogs. Like most bulldogs, they're known for being stubborn and strong-willed, but they're also affectionate and make wonderful companions. While they don't tend to have extreme exercise needs, they still require ruffly 40 minutes of exercise per day and like to be kept busy with social activities. Here are a few fun ideas for activities to enjoy with your free-lance bulldog to make sure they're healthy, socialized, and entertained!

Free-lance bulldogs can overheat easily, which is why an indoor dog park with air conditioning is a great way to keep them active and cool. Indoor dog parks often have fun structures for dogs to climb, as well as lots of room to run around and other dogs to meet. 

No matter the weather, indoor dog parks are a great activity to enjoy with your Free-lance bulldog! While they may not be free like many outdoor dog parks, many indoor dog parks only cost a few dollars to visit. This is an easy activity to enjoy with your Free-lance bulldog where you can sit and watch them play or walk around with them while they explore the area!

Step
1
Find an indoor dog park
Do your research to find an indoor dog park in your area, and be sure to check what you need to bring. Some parks require proof of your dog's vaccinations before they can attend. You should also find out if the park supplies things like doggy bags and water or if you need to bring your own supplies.

2
Visit the indoor dog park
Take your Free-lance bulldog to an indoor dog park and let the fun begin! Be sure to bring the supplies you need (like their leash, collar, water, and doggy bags). Keep an eye on your dog while they play and make sure to get them to take a break if they start to overheat, which is common with bulldogs.

Activity description
Puzzle toys not only keep your pet entertained, but they also help keep your dog's mind sharp by adding a bit of a challenge to their time spent playing with a toy. Dog puzzle toys come in all kinds of forms, including toys with other toys hidden inside of them and shuffle puzzles where dogs must move one part of the toy to obtain a treat. These are great options for Free-lance bulldogs because they can be done indoors where your pup will be cool and comfortable. You can even get creative and make your own puzzle toys for your pooch if you'd like!
Step
1
Make or buy a puzzle toy
There are lots of great puzzle toys online and in pet stores, but if you're the crafty type, why not make your own? All you need is a tennis ball and some hard treats. Cut a slit in the tennis ball and insert the treats. Your dog will have a blast trying to get the treats out! Just be sure to keep an eye on your dog while they play with the toy, and always take it away when it starts coming apart.
Step
2
Teach your dog how to use the puzzle toy
Some dogs pick up on things faster than others. Your dog will probably figure out pretty quickly that there are treats inside of the tennis ball, for example. But if they need a little extra help, let them watch you hide treats, or hold the toy close to their nose so they can smell what's inside.
Step
3
Watch your dog enjoy their puzzle toy
Doggos should always be supervised when they play with toys to make sure they don't choke. Watching your dog play with a puzzle toy is very entertaining and often results in lots of laughs! You can help guide your dog in using the toy or if they don't need any help, you can just sit back and let them show off for you.

Activity description
More and more establishments are calling themselves "dog-friendly" to draw in more customers. This includes shops, restaurants, bars, and many other places pets once weren't allowed. If you have errands to run or you just want to look around, bring your Free-lance bulldog along! These social dogs will love meeting people along the way, and if you're walking outside between shops, your dog can cool off inside air-conditioned stores. You can do this in any kind of weather, and you don't have to spend a dime on it unless you find something you just have to have. Make sure to bring water and doggy bags for your pooch, and always keep them on a leash.
Step
1
Plan your excursion
A quick Google search of dog-friendly places in your town will give you an idea of where your dog can join you. Pick out the place or places you most want to try, and pick a convenient time to visit. If you're traveling there on foot, be sure to check the weather ahead of time and plan accordingly for rain, snow, wind, or extreme heat or cold.
Step
2
Visit dog-friendly stores
Once your trip is planned, head to the dog-friendly places you've chosen. Keep your dog on a leash when you get there (unless they're allowed to be off-leash) and allow them to sniff their surroundings and meet the people inside. Provide your dog with a drink whenever you can.

A Walk in the Park

When the weather isn't too cold or hot, a walk in the park with your Free-lance bulldog is a great way to spend time with them. Allow them to stop and smell the roses along the way, and keep your walk under about 40 minutes so your pet doesn't get too tired.

Beach Day

Head to the beach with your Free-lance bulldog and allow them to romp in the sand and cool off in the water. Make sure to bring drinking water for them, and try to visit in the morning or later in the day when the sun isn't at its peak.

Conclusion
