How Much Exercise Does a Pomeranian Dog Need?
Thinking to get a Pomeranian and want to know how much exercise does a Pomeranian Dog need?
According to pet experts, Pomeranian Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need daily exercise.
Poms need a daily walk. Play will take care of a lot of their exercise needs, however, as with all breeds, play will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk. Dogs that do not get to go on daily walks are more likely to display behavior problems. They will also enjoy a good romp in a safe, open area off lead, such as a large, fenced-in yard.
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 opposed end of the spectrum. If you do not have enough time or energy to play with your pet for many hours a day, then there are specific breeds ideal for your way of life.
Here are some 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 excellent cuddle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and companion, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel succeeds at its original job. The breed is delicate, loving and would much prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy pet dogs that are delicate and affectionate 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 keen on going outside. 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 relatively inactive. One walk a day is all you need to make sure these dogs get a good workout.
Bouncy, bold and busy, the Pomeranian makes the most of every day. It is curious, playful, self-confident (even cocky) and attentive, ever ready for a game or adventure. It is reserved toward strangers. Some can be aggressive toward other dogs. Some bark a lot.
