Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a big backyard to run about in all day so that they can expend 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 particular breeds ideal for your way of life.
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 leave for work in the morning. They can get over 70 pounds in weight, but they make wonderful snuggle mates.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred predominantly as a lapdog and buddy, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel excels at its original job. The breed is soft, 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 dogs that are gentle and loving towards their families. Although they require small exercise, potential owners should be prepared for a lot of drool.
4. Shih Tzu - Shih Tzus often tend to not be especially fond of going outdoors. Many times, they will get lots of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight commonly maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are constrained to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are relatively non-active. One walk a day is all you need to guarantee these dogs get a good workout.
Tornjak has a calm temperament. A typical adult Tornjak is very calm, peaceful, at first sight an indifferent animal, but when the situation demands it, it is a vigilant and very alert watchdog. The character is equal to the temperament; they are not nervous nor aggressive. In general, they are very tough, not too demanding, sturdy dogs. With their human family they are very emotional. When living in a pack they are highly social animals and there isn't any fighting between the pack members. Towards strangers or other animals, as a rule, Tornjak is not overly aggressive. But when the situation calls upon it, Tornjak is quite decisive and it can without any consideration attack even much stronger rivals. Shepherds used to say that a Tornjak who guards the flock is a fair match to two wolves, and a couple will confront and chase away a bear without any undue respect. In these situations Tornjaks are very tenacious.
