Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run about in all day so that they can use up all that pent-up energy. However, there are various other breeds that are on the opposite end of the spectrum. If you do not have the time or energy to play with your pooch for many hours a day, then there are certain breeds perfect for your lifestyle.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They often tend to be rather 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 fantastic snuggle companions.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and partner, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel excels at its original job. The breed is soft, caring and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy canines that are gentle 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 tend to not be especially fond of going outdoors. Many times, they will get plenty 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 quite non-active. One walk a day is all you need to make sure these dogs get a good workout.
Despite its "sourmug," the bulldog is jovial, comical and amiable, among the most docile and mellow of dogs. It is willing to please, although it retains a stubborn streak. It is very good with children. Most are moderately friendly toward strangers. Although some can be aggressive with strange dogs, the breed is quite good with other pets.
