Everyone agrees that as sweet and cuddly as an English bulldog can be, they can also be exhausting. Unless you have a grown-up pit bull who is lazy and laid back, you’ll be chasing your wrinkled friend until they learn some manners.
Pit Bulls can be as energetic and playful as any breed puppy until they are 2 years old. They should be maintained with proper care and must also be trained to listen to you well.
Why is my English bulldog so hyperactive? English Bulldogs, especially puppies, are full of energy. Bulldogs that don’t get enough attention don’t get frequent walks or enough playtime, and they can become hyperactive and destructive. Older dogs tend to be lazier but still need activity and walking, as their bursts of energy tend to be shorter. Plan daily walks and play times with your English Bulldog to help him settle in.
Causes for Hyperactivity in Bulldogs
Here are some reasons why your pit bull may have been high on energy
Your pit bull may not be getting enough to eat
Sometimes, if your French Bulldog is always overly agitated and acting strangely, it may be that your dog’s hunger is not being satisfied. This happens to many dogs.
They tend to show changes in behaviour when they eat poorly or dislike food. You may want to change the food you give your dog or try changing the amount of food.
Not eating anything and not eating certain types of dog food are two different things. Check if your old Pits won’t eat anything or just won’t eat certain types of food. Also, watch to see if your Pitbull will drink water as well. If this is noticeable, make an appointment with your veterinarian immediately.
A pit bull may be afraid or suspicious of something
Dogs bark at the front door at strangers and when someone knocks because they’re worried about your safety or excited to meet new friends. A dog also recognizes a person by his sense of smell. The French Bulldog is an even-tempered house dog that thrives on attention. He demands it!
This dog is ideal for a single-person household, as he may compete for your attention with other family members. The French Bulldog doesn’t often bark, only when he finds real cause for excitement.

They will make unpleasant noises if they come into contact with some unpleasant or suspicious dog odors. So, if your dog is barking too much, you can check to see if it is witnessing anything unusual.
Boredom and Extensive Energy
Is your English Bulldog tearing furniture, barking and running wild around the house all the time? Chances are your pit bull is bored and wants you to expose him to new high-energy activities. Maybe you can teach your pit bull a new trick, like rolling over or riding a skateboard.
If it’s too cold outside, take your Bulldog for a walk or play a little tug of war. This will give your Bulldog the attention and activity it needs, and after about 15 minutes, it will likely calm down.
