16 High Energy Dogs For Families On The Go
Bernese Mountain Dog
These gentle giants can be big (a male can be upwards of of 115 lbs.) but theyâ€™re super playful. Bernese Mountain Dogs are moderate on the scale of high energy dogs. Thankfully, theyâ€™re good indoor dogs, but they do need at least a half hour of moderate exercise daily. In describing Berners (as theyâ€™re called), the AKC says, â€œenjoy outdoor activities and make great companions on long walks or hikes. Outdoorsy owners often take their canine companions camping and backpacking. Berners enjoy pulling young children in a cart.â€ And these high energy dogs are gentle in temperment, so theyâ€™re great with kids.
