Default Your favorite time to walk the bulldogs?
I have been really mixing up my times lately, apart of it being that, I am dealing with a horrible case of sleep challenges. I often take walks late at night (past midnight) or at night in general. I am aiming to walk bright and early, but it's proving to be a challenge, due to my insomnia. So I am just curious, what time do you all prefer to take your walks, generally speaking? I have to admit, it's bloody quiet and peaceful to walk late at night, but being a somewhat paranoid individual, it can freak me out at times haha. Despite having, a very protective dog.

well I perfer night walking in summer, (currently unable to walk and I think you read my post on why...freaken sucks...anyhow) in winter I like mid day so its the warmest part. If I don't want to have any kind of encounters, squirrels or anything, I walk mid day summer since even the cats are hiding from the heat but now I can't do that with the baby. the funny thing is though if I walk when its dark my dog (whichever I bring doesn't matter) is on high alert for anything, animal or human, if I walk when I can see like just before sundown they are fine and chill

I am not sure, if I have come across your situation Elliehanna, but regardless, I do hope things become better for you soon! True, winter time, I typically walk mid day, it's just so difficult to grasp how much of a challenge, my sleeping schedule has evolved in. I was thinking, since school just began, I wouldn't mind walking mid day before the school individuals are out and such (most traffic of times). Cats and wild game, don't typically come out until night over here, which is probably the only downfall when we walk late at night (zoey begins her prey driven whines/screeches and loudly, when we spot them). It is definitely true, Zoey becomes more alert, when we are walking at night vs daylight (I think she naturally senses the likeliness, of wild game and such, out at those hours). I do reside in a pretty gang affiliated town for the most part, so, there are always creeps out and about in almost every spot that we will pass through, regardless of the time of day. My specific neighborhood, is brand new and ideally, safe, but it's situated right beside, the worst part of my town.

I love walking at night. At first I was just doing it because i used to walk before I went to work at 3pm, but the pavement was getting too hot. Because I still live with my parents, I unfortunately can't go out at o'dark 30 unless they're away or else I'd get locked out... So I usually go at 8 or 10.

I love it... No idiots (if I stay off main street), and we have not been attacked in SO long!! Granted, I still have to take a slip lead and treats incase we come across a loose dog, but it's much better. I don't need headphones for my iPod, lol, no one is gonna care, they're all in their houses so I can listen to music and my environment.

Ive also been having a lot of trouble sleeping... Which is why I'm awake right now. Ran out of benedryl, not that it keeps me asleep after I've used it more than a week solid anyways, but it helps. I tell you what though, if I could go for a walk right now, I'd be back in half an hour ready to pass out.

When winter comes, which I'm dreading, I hope I figure a way around getting back to afternoon walks...

Yeah, late walking has become apart of the norm for myself lately, anywhere from 12 a.m. - 3 a.m. That is definitely another advantage though, no loose dog has ever been an interference, when we walk this late. I also do, play my music via phone, aloud, without any consideration as, I am moving along. I wish some sort of natural herb would work for myself. I am just so compelled towards the night owl lifestyle lately. I am with you on the venture back towards, afternoon walks.

I took a walk during the sunset hour, for the first time in a very long time, yesterday evening. Sunrise, that's when I am barely putting myself to sleep haha. I've been debating upon, whether or not, I should just walk Zoey at the time and than come back to fall asleep, since I can't fall asleep before than. Do you walk, both Torque and Cleo at the same time?

If we're just taking a nice stroll I'll walk them both, but if it's for exercise and I'm wanting them to pull they have to be walked seperate. I'd most definitely get injured if I had them both pulling, lol.

I like early morning walks best, but I TRY to walk at least three times a day. Morning before work, generally around 6am. On my lunch break when it isn't scorching hot, so at 1pm, and in the evening when I get home from work, usually between 6pm and 7pm.

We walk the dog around 7 AM and before dark, due to the heat. I could never walk her after dark at this time of year, due to the mosquitos.

Depends on the season. In the summer I love walking late at night.

Depends on the season and the weather.

I generally don't walk dogs in the winter. Between salt, and the possibility of slipping on some ice and busting my ass (which is way worse when you're walking a couple of dogs), I hold out for the occasional nice winter day or spring.

I love walking at dusk, but the mosquitoes have been so bad, that they have kinda ruined that for me.

Early morning and dusk. I like it when all the animals (except the bugs) start coming out.

We're a big fan of the late night-early morning hikes/adventures. For exampleeeee... On Monday, we went hiking/swimming on the river trails from 2am til 7:30am.
