Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run about in all day so that they can exhaust all that pent-up energy. Though, there are various other breeds that are on the reverse end of the spectrum. If you do not have enough time or energy to play with your pet for many hours a day, then there are particular breeds perfect for your way of living.
Here are some 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 friends.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred mainly as a lapdog and buddy, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel succeeds at its original job. The breed is delicate, loving and would much prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy canines that are delicate and caring towards their families. Although they require little bit of exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus tend to not be specifically fond of going outside. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight commonly maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are confined to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are relatively less active. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
Australian Bulldog Information
The Australian Bulldog is a medium sized dog that loves being part of a family. The Aussie Bulldog is intelligent, loving and loyal with a sound temperament. Good with children and fun-loving, this breed is pretty easygoing. It will enjoy playing with a ball or Frisbee and loves to play or swim in water. It is a good watch dog but not a guard dog, though its appearance can be a deterrent. Given the alertness of this breed, the Aussie Bulldog does have the ability to be a dependable watch dog at a mature age. With its intelligence and loyalty it is a very easy dog to teach at home, but obedience training is recommended (as with any breed of dog). The Aussie Bulldog has stamina and its personality is one everyone could get attached to. This breed craves leadership from its owners. Like all dogs, they need a firm, but calm, confident and consistent pack leader and daily mental and physical exercise to avoid any behavior issues.
