More.

When we go on hikes, she probably runs 2-3 times as far as I walk.

Right now, I'm sitting in a computer chair, and she's wandering around the house, doing her post-dinner inspection of everything.

Romeo is way less. If it was up to him we would lounge around all day lol
He is always up for a good walk.. but is IN NO WAY a running partner or as into running as I am.

I'm so down for a run or a game of fetch or tag but eh, he prefers his walks to remain casual and more about stopping to sniff and smell the roses than actual play

Bandit and I are pretty even. He frolics around me quite a bit but I'm also carrying 40lb+ of gear and Briggs on me so I think he'd be less hyper if he had such a load to carry.

I chose cheesecake, cause it really depends. If we are out doing something, she's all gogogo, if not, she sleeps

Way more active. There's no question. He trots and runs circles around me. I have literally never exhausted that dog to the point it he doesn't. Gogogogogogogogogo. When I get my license (soon) I will take him hiking in the mountains, that's a better way of exercising him.

They're all more active than I am, but they all have good off switches and are easy to live with. They can go for hours, but none of them bug me for activity or exercise of any kind. They settle well, but are up and ready to go at a moment's notice. I like having high energy dogs, though... even if I'm not a go-go-go type of person. They keep me more active than I'd be otherwise, they're fun, and I just enjoy them. And all of the breeds I like are high energy breeds, so I don't really have much of a choice but to get out and do things with my dogs, haha. It'd be easy to get a big lazy dog who enjoys a walk here and there, but it really wouldn't be much fun for me.

Gavroche is about the same, Logan is more. But they also have excellent off switches.
