Rate your Hav's energy level

I was just curious how you would rate your Hav's energy level? Lets say 1-10, ten being the most active. My guys are so laid back, I wonder if this is out of the ordinary. Yes, they do get a 2-3 mile hike which probably wears them out! LOL.

They lie around a lot, but they also do the RLH and wrestle with each other throughout the day.

Bella who is 3.5 years old is about a 3 for her energy level.
Freddie who is 2 years old and he is 4.5 energy level
Scudder is just over a 1 year and he is a 4.5-5 energy level.

They are pretty peaceful and just walk around, not a lot of running and fast movements. Does this sound like anyone else's Hav?

Bonnie seems off the charts. But she is still a pup. I only can see this as compared to Duncan. She gets a mile walk in the AM and a 3 mile walk every night. Wrestles with the baby EVERY moment she can, RLH in the house and outside of the house.

Bonnie is 6 mo and I'd rate her energy at 9 (she doesn't even care to be held for short periods of time and struggles to get free).

Duncan is 2 mo and really laid back, loves to cuddle and snuggle, plays sometimes, gets dragged (still trying to figure out the leash) on the night walk and I'd rate his energy at a 3-4.

The hike probably does make a difference for the dogs. Mine only get in 2-3 miles/day and I would still say that Brutus is a 10--at just over a year and
Roxie is an 8-9 at 10 months. Thank goodness they have each other or I would not have a house!!!

Milo's a really mellow kinda guy. He does have his moments, but for the most part I'd probably rate him a 5.

I would give Dora a 7. She demands a good amount of play time but she likes to sleep in and cuddle. Isabelle is still off the charts! I swear that dog plugs into the sockets during the day when I am gone!

At 5 months, Norah is about a 9. She goes on a 2 mile walk around our property and to nature preserves about every day and she is still crazy energized. Her favorite way to get out her sillies is her version of "tag". Tag is basically "escape my xpen and run into mommy's dining room where mom can't get me easily because of all the breakables" I can't even tell you how many vases and plates she has broken doing her run-like-hecks. The room is supposed to be off limits but its hard to keep the door closed all the time. *sigh* Its a good thing there so cute...haha

Both my boys are extremely low energy they play rough and RLH but most of the time they lie around. I would rate them both as a 3 or a 4. Jasper likes Walks more than Cash- but cash will go out and frolic more on his own. Jasper does not have a Play gene.

Ok, you guys who rate your dogs off the charts, do they walk around or are they darting around most of the time? I think my guys have just gotten lazy. Most of the time they insist on me picking them up to go potty outside!

Pablo seems to be a very well balanced dog, at 4.25 months I'd give him a 5. Now I don't know how much more he'd be running around the living room if I let him out of his ex-pen all day...
