Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds

If you do not have the time or energy to play with your pet for many hours a day, then there are certain breeds ideal for your lifestyle.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.

2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and companion, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel excels at its original job. The breed is delicate, affectionate and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy pet dogs that are soft and loving 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 particularly fond of going outdoors. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight normally maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are constrained 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.
The boxer is playful, exuberant, inquisitive, attentive, demonstrative, devoted and outgoing; it is a perfect companion for an active family.
