Top 21 Laziest Dog Breeds



You’d think that a dog of this size would require a lot of physical activity, but, strangely, Neapolitan Mastiffs don’t really need to run and jump all that much. And it’s a good thing, too, since they generally prefer their downtime on the rug or in their favorite chair.

This large, old dog breed originally from Naples, Italy, is fearless, devoted and intelligent. They are great for families, as long as they are properly socialized and accustomed to children, and they are terrific protectors. But they are not the best choice for extremely active, outdoorsy people who love taking their dog hiking, jogging and swimming with them. The Neo would simply prefer to stay home and take a nap or two while you finish taking care of all that exercise. They are perfect companions for quiet evenings at home, preferably in front of the TV set.
