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 various other breeds that are on the reverse end of the spectrum. If you do not have the time or energy to play with your dog for many hours a day, then there are specific breeds perfect for your lifestyle.
Here are several dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency to be fairly 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 terrific snuggle buddies.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and companion, 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 very lazy dogs that are delicate and tender towards their families. 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 keen on going outside. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight generally maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are limited to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are rather inactive. One walk a day is all you need to assure these dogs get a good workout.
