Whippets are tiny dogs with a lot of running power. They need and deserve plenty of outdoor space in which to exercise. They are small but were bred to run. A Bulldog, considered a medium-sized dog, wants nothing more than one or two quick walks every day and then to settle down and be petted.
Working dogs (Shepherds, hunting dogs, sledding dogs) need plenty of exercise and something to keep them busy. While some of the breeds are considered medium to large-sized all require ample room to exercise.
Tiny dogs like Chihuahuas don't need much space. They are happiest when resting on their owners cozy laps. They can live with you in a studio apartment or camper as long as the temperature is not too high or too low. (Smaller dogs are quiet temperature-sensitive.
Super-sized dogs (Wolfhounds, Great Danes) require lots of room. However, as they age they tend to enjoy simply laying by your side or at your feet with several long walks in between.
