Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run all around in all day so that they can use up all that pent-up energy. Nonetheless, there are other breeds that are on the opposite end of the spectrum. If you do not have the time or energy to play with your doggie for several hours a day, then there are specific breeds perfect for your life-style.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They usually tend to be relatively aloof, but their independent nature means it will not mind when you commit for work in the morning. They can get over 70 pounds in weight, but they make great cuddle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and buddy, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel excels at its original job. The breed is gentle, caring and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy dogs that are gentle and tender towards their loved ones. Although they require little exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus tend to not be particularly keen on going outside. 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 restricted to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are pretty inactive. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
