25 Laziest Dog Breeds That Will Keep Your Couch-Potato Life Company

Honestly speaking, playing with dogs is interesting, but it could make you exhausted if you adopt a more active one. When you come home after a busy day, would you like a dog that is willing to snuggle up and rest beside you or an energetic one that cries for the outdoor activities. Think about the precious time you sacrifice to make sure your dog spends enough energy, the time that could have been spent doing much nicer things, does it make you hesitate about dog ownership, even for a second? If yes, lazy dog breeds are here to help you out because they love sleeping and hate exercise as much as you do. 

1. English Bulldog

The name of "laziest king" could belong to the English Bulldog. Don't be tricked by their hard work on learning to skateboard and surf; it's a necessary activity to control weight and maintain images. When they take exercise, they may have already prayed for their bedtime to come.

2. French Bulldog

Regarding laziness, this one is a tiny bit better than his English cousin. The difference does not lie in the time he will sleep but the noises he will like to make. He may love a funny game when he is not "drunk."

3. Havanese

With a "baby" face, the Havanese enjoys the social life, such as walks and outings to bring fun for him, but he also doesn't mind snuggling on the couch all day. They may well know that the secret of looking youthful is to take a nice long sleep.

4. Saint Bernard

You only need to glance at a Saint Bernard to see through their lazy nature. It's forgivable for a giant breed that doesn't like too many activities. Can you understand how reluctant a fat person would like to run, let alone in warmer climates with the very thick coats, even in the cold weather, it's not a pleasurable thing.

5. Pug

"Snoring" may be a good "feedback" to the "Hypnos" (sleep God), at least, it shows you are sleeping. In such a way, the Pug often tells us that he enjoys his time. He seems to feel no shame to announce his laziness at all. And their "honesty" even makes them a cuter breed than other ones. They become sentimental, if they are left alone. Don't let them always cry when they wake up and find you're not there!

6. Tibetan Spaniel

Sleeping so much doesn't make them stupid! Instead, Tibetan Spaniel is alert and curious, and he costs so much energy to think about the "dog life" that he has to rest well to start another time-consuming meditation. Only a little space can satisfy their needs, for example, it's an ideal place for them to nap on your feet due to their small size.

7. Chihuahua

Body shape is not the key factor in a dog's lazy nature, which will be best explained by the Chihuahua - the smallest breed of dog. They are much more comfortable being inside and sleep for a whole afternoon, so they're no surprise on the list for couch potato races.

8. Japanese Chin

Want to find a dog that is as lazy as a cat, as cute as a cat? The Japanese Chin perfectly meets your needs. When putting them in a comfortable bed, they will fall asleep without much complaint or most of the time; they just sleep next to their owners for the remainder of the day and night.

9. Bullmastiff

This "muscular man" won't let you down! He has mastered the art napping. Even though they look like a working dog with "suitable size" and strength, they are too lazy to spend time digging out their potential for work.

10. English Mastiff

If Bullmastiff ranks in at No.2 lazy dog, the English Mastiff should be No.1. They're lazier and require minimal exercise. Facing many people's doubt that their body shape doesn't match up with their abilities, they are with a show of calmness. After all, no dog can decide to become a dog before he was born. They tried!

11. Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever is well known for his mild temperament, pleasant, and outgoing nature. When faced unpleasant things in life, they choose to sleep it off and take the chill route.

12. Basenji

Basenji is another “lazy” breed, but different from the Pomeranian, they don't care about their image at all. Let’s just watch them live out their true selves in their natural habitats.

13. Pomeranian

The Pomeranian has a pretty face and small body shape. They love napping and manage to captivate you with their smiles while they are at it.

14. Beagle

Snoopy of the comic strip Peanuts made the Beagle famous around the world, And like Snoopy, this little one loves to sleep.

15. Cockapoo

Cockapoo will only keep active an average of 64.72 minutes a day, just about one hour. If you think they sleep too much, you can wake them and play a game of fetch. But don’t retard their sleeping schedule too much, or you’ll need to take care of their ill tempers.

16. Basset Hound

Basset Hounds have plenty of distinguishing characteristics, stubby legs, droopy ears, wrinkled brows and their laid-back personalities. Like all dogs, they can get bursts of energy when chasing critters. The rest of the time, they are happy to chase critters in their dreams.
