Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run around in all day so that they can use up all that pent-up energy. Nonetheless, there are other breeds that are on the opposed 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 ideal for your way of life.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They often 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 wonderful snuggle partners.
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 gentle, affectionate 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 passionate towards their loved ones. Although they require little bit of exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus usually tend to not be particularly keen on going outdoors. Many times, they will get plenty of exercise simply walking 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 fairly less active. One walk a day is all you need to assure these dogs get a good workout.
English Shepherd Information
The English Shepherd temperament is the defining characteristic of the breed, with high intelligence and often a unique type of kindness for those in his home, both animals and people. The English Shepherd is often an independent worker. English Shepherds are adaptable and learn routines quickly. Some can be watchful of strangers and are more one-person dogs. However, once he accepts people or children or stock as his own, there are few better caretakers than an English Shepherd. The English Shepherd frequently exhibits an independent, bossy or "enforcer of the rules" streak in his temperament. If the dog's desire to enforce order is not channeled and directed to a suitable end by a strong, confident leader, he may exhibit many undesirable behaviors. Nevertheless, English shepherds can thrive as companion dogs in environments that provide sufficient mental and physical stimulation.
