Did you know?
On average, dogs need about twelve to 14 hours of sleep a day.
If there's a silver lining to the lockdown last year, it's that a lot of dogs benefited from extra walks or cuddles. But not all dogs will be impressed by more activities! Even though some dogs are bred for speed and agility, others are more laid back than others.
Here are the top 5 laziest pups in the canine kingdom.
5. Chow Chow
With a blue tongue and a lion-like crown of fur, Chow Chows are one of the most distinctive-looking breeds. Hot weather is a no-no for Chow Chows, and they require minimal exercise. A short daily walk is usually enough to keep them healthy!
4. Saint Bernard
These gentle giants are known for their loving, placid demeanours. They don’t typically require much exercise. But it’s important not to let these dogs get too heavy, as excess weight will strain their joints.
Chihuahuas are one of the tiniest dog breeds in the world. Since most things are much bigger than them, it’s no wonder that Chihuahuas prefer to spend most of their time inside with their favourite person! A short walk a day should keep these adorable pups happy and healthy.
2. Shih Tzu
A Shih Tzu’s favourite activity is typically following their beloved human around the house. Like other dogs with short faces, they are sensitive to heat and are not well-suited to hard exercise. A short walk a day is enough for this tiny munchkin.
Bulldogs—both English and French—tend to have trouble breathing properly. That is why they aren’t fans of heat or strenuous exercise, and are just about the laziest couch potato dog there is. Like any other dog, they need daily (low-intensity) activity to stay healthy, but they’re perfectly happy to lounge around on your lap for the rest of the day.
