Exercise Needs: These dogs need plenty of daily exercise and stimulation from their owners. They have very high tolerance and stamina for long exercise sessions, but we would suggest owners don't exercise them to their limit, as they body doesn't always keep up with their minds!!

English Bull Terrier K9 Obedience Dog Breed Summary:

English Bull Terriers are friendly dogs that are full of mischief and charm. They have great physical strength and a temperament to match.

These are not ideal dogs for the novice owner as they can be stubborn and destructive if they do not receive the correct positive training from an owner that understands the dog's history and capabilities.

They make good guard dogs and love to play with children but remember…the Bull Terrier was bred to fight and should never be left unsupervised with children or other pets.
