Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run all around in all day so that they can exhaust all that pent-up energy. Although, there are various other breeds that are on the opposite end of the spectrum. If you do not have the time or energy to play with your pet for several hours a day, then there are certain breeds ideal for your life-style.
Here are several dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They often tend to be relatively 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 snuggle friends.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred mainly as a lapdog and companion, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shines 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 canines 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 usually tend to not be particularly keen on going outdoors. Many times, they will get plenty 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 assure these dogs get a good workout.

It is sensitive, loving, gentle and good with children and other dogs, but it may chase strange animals. It tends to be reserved with strangers; some pharaoh hounds are even timid.
