Active lifestyle puppies. Some breeds of dog are more well-suited to an active lifestyle than others. These breeds tend to be full of energy and purpose, and require lots of exercise and diversion. If you provide that exercise, they will be happy and healthy, but if they’re neglected, they can often become anxious and tear up their surroundings. Labradors, Huskies, Dobermans, Dalmatians and Border Collies are all examples of dog breeds which require an active lifestyle. If you’re planning to get one of these puppies, expect to gain a companion who will push you to keep them entertained and exercised.
