How Much Exercise Does a Pug Dog Need?
Wanting to get a Pug and want to know how much exercise does a Pug Dog need?
According to pet experts, Pug Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that need daily exercise.
Pugs are strong dogs with short, straight legs. They need to be taken on daily walks. They enjoy energetic games and will keep in better health if given regular exercise. But be careful not to overdo it, especially if you see them start to wheeze.
Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run around in all day so that they can exhaust all that pent-up energy. However, there are other breeds that are on the reverse end of the spectrum. If you do not have enough time or energy to play with your dog for several hours a day, then there are specific breeds ideal for your life-style.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency 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 predominantly as a lapdog and companion, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shines at its original job. The breed is soft, caring and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are very lazy canines that are delicate and tender towards their families. 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 fond of going outside. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight often maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are constrained to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are quite inactive. One walk a day is all you need to ensure these dogs get a good workout.
The breed is often described by the Latin phrase multum in parvo, or "much in little" or "a lot of dog in a small space", alluding to the Pug's remarkable and charming personality, despite its small size. Pugs are strong willed but rarely aggressive, and are suitable for families with children. The majority of the breed is very fond of children and sturdy enough to properly play with them. Depending on their owner's mood, they can be quiet and docile but also vivacious and teasing. Pugs tend to be intuitive and sensitive to the moods of their owners and are usually eager to please them. Pugs tend to have a somewhat lazy nature and spend a lot of time napping. They are often called "shadows" because they follow their owners around and like to stay close to the action, craving attention and affection from their owners.
