Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run around in all day so that they can exhaust all that pent-up energy. Though, there are other breeds that are on the reverse end of the spectrum. If you do not have the time or energy to play with your doggie for many hours a day, then there are certain breeds best for your lifestyle.
Here are a few 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 commit for work in the morning. They can get over 70 pounds in weight, but they make terrific cuddle friends.
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 prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy pet dogs that are gentle and caring towards their families. 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 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 generally maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are limited to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are fairly non-active. One walk a day is all you need to ensure these dogs get a good workout.
Cockapoos have become popular because they generally combine the outgoing, loving personality of the Cocker Spaniel with the low-shedding, low-dander qualities of the Poodle. Cockapoos are active, and thrive when they receive regular exercise. Cockapoos can be very agile, excelling at "retrieve" games and enjoying activities such as swimming. Cockapoos are frequently very needy dogs and as such are not suitable to be left alone for long periods as they frequently suffer from separation distress or anxiety. The Cockapoo is a cross-breed, not a purebred, and does not "breed true." In breeders' terms, "breeding true" means that the pups will have consistently predictable characteristics. Cockapoos, however, may inherit the characteristics of either or both their parent breeds. While some Cockapoos appear more similar to Cocker Spaniels, others will exhibit more Poodle traits, creating a variation in Cockapoo appearance and temperament.
