Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run about in all day so that they can exhaust all that pent-up energy. Nonetheless, 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 several hours a day, then there are certain breeds perfect for your way of life.
Here are several dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency to be fairly 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 companions.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred primarily as a lapdog and partner, 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 soft and passionate towards their loved ones. Although they require small exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus often tend to not be specifically keen on going outdoors. Many times, they will get plenty 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 quite inactive. One walk a day is all you need to make sure these dogs get a good workout.
Bracco Italiano Information
Braccos are very much a people-loving dog and thrive on human companionship, having a strong need to be close to their people. They are a particularly good family dog, and many have a strong love of children. They get along well with other dogs and pets, if trained to do so - it is, afterall, a hunting breed - and must be taught what to chase and what not to. They are very willing to please as long as they have decided that your idea is better than theirs. Obedience training is a must for a Bracco, and the more is asked of them, the better they do. Harsh reprimands do not work with this breed unless the reprimand is a fair one - and harshness must occasionally be used with some dogs to remind them who is actually in charge. Although not an aggressive breed, many Braccos will alert if there is a reason, and some will bark or growl if there's a good reason. The breed loves to hunt, and they excel at it - in fact, a non-hunting Bracco is not a happy Bracco, and will act out in various other ways. Hunting without a gun (as in NAVHDA - this group does not even allow a handler to carry a gun during trials) is an area in which the Bracco can excel and this can be a great opportunity for training the dog to connect with the owner. They are an active breed, but require more mental exercise than physical exercise to keep them happy. A Bracco owner can teach games like hide-and-seek (an object or person) which fits into the breed's original and current usage, and keeps them mentally active.
