Schapendoes Question

Are Schapendoes extremely active? Would an 1-1/2 daily walk up and down hills in a State park suffice along with a fenced in backyard of approx 3/4 acre? Or is more exercise necessary in order to live "orderly" with this breed?

Although Schapendoes are a herding breed and do enjoy having something to do, what you describe should be more than enough to keep the dog happy. I usually suggest at least 1 hour of energetic activity - ie playing ball, playing with other dogs, hiking; especially for younger dogs. These dogs tend to be active when you are but quite happy to hang out and be coach potatoes when things are quiet.
