Needs lots of attention! Whether it's walks, or play! That min 2 hours a days sounds about right. He hates to be left alone. Very jealous if we pet other dogs, sometimes even eachother (my boyfriend and I). The attention needs to be on him at all times. Very gentle and loving. He loves to hunt of course, so off leash walks in the woods so he wont get to the street is a must to spend that energy and stimulate him. He loves to swim, so fetch on land and in water! And hes also quite the fisher. Lasers are not only for cats! He loves it, but gets really loud when we play! And he loves balloons! Food obsessed so we need to be strict with him, he had been overweight for a while, on and off diets. We found that feeding him less more often was the best. Hes a begger and will steal food if he can reach! At 8 years old, he hasnt slowed down all that much. Still wrestles with daddy every night for at least 30 mins!
