15 Dog Breeds That Love To Be Lazy


All dogs need exercise, but some need a little bit more than others. Whether they get bored more easily or are simply better athletes, some breeds are completely unsuitable for the couch-potato life. Others, however, can be found sleeping more often than not. If you’re looking for one of these low-key dog breeds, this list is for you.

#1 – English Bulldog


The English Bulldog is probably one of the laziest dog breeds around, although you can find them learning to skateboard and surf. Like any dog, they do need activity but are perfectly capable of sleeping on the couch pretty much all day and night.

#2 – French Bulldog


The French Bulldog is a little feistier than its English cousin, but that doesn’t mean it enjoys sleep any less. Frenchies are an excellent choice for someone who wants a funny dog that’s capable of relaxing. 

#3 – Bullmastiff


Despite its size and strength, the Bullmastiff isn’t much of a working dog anymore. If anything, the breed works very hard at a good nap. They do need exercise but actually make great apartment dwellers due to their little need for a yard.
