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. Though, there are other breeds that are on the opposed 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 ideal for your way of living.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They tend 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 fantastic cuddle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred primarily as a lapdog and friend, 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 pet dogs that are delicate and tender 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 especially fond of going outside. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight typically maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are constrained to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are pretty inactive. One walk a day is all you need to assure these dogs get a good workout.
