How Much Exercise Does an Affenpinscher Dog Need?
Looking to own an Affenpinscher and want to know how much exercise does an Affenpinscher Dog need?
According to a prominent dog association, Affenpinscher Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need daily exercise.
The Affenpinscher needs a daily walk. While out on the walk the dog must be made to heel beside or behind the person holding the lead, as in a dog's mind the leader leads the way, and that leader needs to be the human.
Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run all around in all day so that they can expend all that pent-up energy. However, there are other breeds that are on the reverse end of the spectrum. If you do not have enough time or energy to play with your pooch for many hours a day, then there are specific breeds ideal for your way of living.
Here are several dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency to be relatively aloof, but their independent nature means it will not mind when you leave for work in the morning. They can get over 70 pounds in weight, but they make great snuggle buddies.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred mainly as a lapdog and companion, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shines at its original job. The breed is delicate, caring and would much prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy dogs that are delicate and passionate towards their loved ones. Although they require little exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus usually tend to not be especially fond of going outdoors. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight usually maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are constrained to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are rather non-active. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
The affenpinscher lives up to its name — "monkey terrier" — in both looks and actions. A terrier at heart, it is busy, inquisitive, bold and stubborn, but it also loves to monkey around, being playful and mischievous. It tends to bark and even climb. Unlike most terriers, it is fairly good with other dogs and pets. This little dog is best with a family that likes entertainment and has a very good sense of humor.
