Sharbo Activity Requirements
The Sharbo hybrid is said to be a constant mover. That being said, you can expect that he'll have a great deal of energy which will need to be managed by 1 to 2 hours of exercise each and every day. This exercise activity can come in the form of long daily walks, periods of playtime in the dog park or fenced yard, interactive games of fetch, Frisbee, fly ball, earth dog activities, obedience training and agility training. His hunting/prey drive is strong, so be sure to keep him on leash whenever he is outside the house, fenced yard or other safe enclosure, unless part of your daily exercise routine is planned to include chasing him down the street, around the block or through the woods in pursuit of a small animal or unusual scent which has attracted his attention. He's not an excessive barker, becoming verbal only when necessary, so he'll do well in an apartment or condo unless there is a noise restriction in place. In the case of any type of housing accommodation, it is vital, for his health and happiness, that he be exercised appropriately to avoid the annoying destructive habits which can develop from boredom. He can also live quite nicely in a family home with or without a fenced yard in an urban or rural setting. He is best suited to moderate or temperate climates, with additional protection and precautions being taken when temperatures are hotter or colder.
