Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run all around in all day so that they can expend all that pent-up energy. Nonetheless, 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 dog for several hours a day, then there are particular breeds perfect for your way of living.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They 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 good snuggle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred primarily as a lapdog and companion, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel excels at its original job. The breed is soft, affectionate and would much prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy canines that are gentle and tender towards their loved ones. Although they require small exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus usually tend to not be especially fond of going outdoors. Many times, they will get plenty of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight typically maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are limited to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are rather less active. One walk a day is all you need to ensure these dogs get a good workout.
