Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run about in all day so that they can use up all that pent-up energy. However, 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 pooch for several hours a day, then there are certain breeds best for your way of life.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They have a tendency to be relatively 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 excellent cuddle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred mainly as a lapdog and companion, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel succeeds at its original job. The breed is gentle, affectionate and would much prefer to be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy canines that are delicate and passionate 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 often tend to not be especially keen on going outside. Many times, they will get lots 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 non-active. One walk a day is all you need to make sure these dogs get a good workout.
The Sloughi is an intelligent and very driven hunter which chases on sight what it considers moving prey, but also relies on olfactory and acoustic cues in the chase. In Africa the Sloughi is a working dog, primarily used for hunting. The Sloughi is typically loyal, playful and affectionate with family and cautious and watchful with strangers. The Sloughi does not respond well to harsh training, but benefits from a firm, consistent, fair and praising hand. (Faults: Sharpness or excessive shyness.)
