How Much Exercise Does a Cairn Terrier Dog Need?
Thinking to adopt a Cairn Terrier and want to know how much exercise does a Cairn Terrier Dog need?
According to pet experts, Cairn Terrier Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need daily exercise.
These are active little dogs that need a daily walk. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, as with all breeds play will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk. Dogs that do not get to go on daily walks are more likely to display behavior problems. They will also enjoy a good romp in a safe open area off-lead, such as a large, fenced-in yard.
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. Though, 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 pet for many hours a day, then there are specific breeds best for your life-style.
Here are several dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency to be relatively 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 terrific cuddle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and friend, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shines at its original job. The breed is soft, loving and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy canines 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 often tend to not be particularly fond of going outside. 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 limited to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are fairly inactive. One walk a day is all you need to ensure these dogs get a good workout.
