Top 5 Laziest Dog Breeds
They need a large backyard to run about 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 pet for several hours a day, then there are particular breeds ideal for your way of life.
Here are a few dog breeds that prefer napping over running.
1. Chow Chow - They often 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 snuggle partners.
2. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Bred primarily as a lapdog and buddy, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel shines at its original job. The breed is gentle, affectionate and would much rather be inside next to you than doing any sort of vigorous activity.
3. Basset Hound - They are really lazy pet dogs that are gentle 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 usually tend to not be specifically keen on going outside. Many times, they will get plenty of exercise simply walking around the apartment all day.
5. Boston Terrier - Their weight generally maxes out at 25 pounds, so even if you are confined to a studio apartment, this pooch will not mind. Boston Terriers are fairly inactive. One walk a day is all you need to assure these dogs get a good workout.
