Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run all 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 specific breeds ideal for your way of living.
Here are some dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They usually 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 great snuggle buddies.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred mainly as a lapdog and friend, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel excels at its original job. The breed is delicate, caring and would much prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy canines that are gentle and caring 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 tend to not be especially 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 confined to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are quite inactive. One walk a day is all you need to make sure these dogs get a good workout.
