A Different Kind of Breed: The Couch Potato Dog!

  Posted on   by   No comments


Party Marty here!  Happy Friday!  The sun is out!  The temperatures promise to soar higher over the weekend, and I can look forward to two full days of productive napping and sunning myself! After all, that’s what this cool cat does to remain productive and happy!

Even though Mother Nature has been gentler on us this week than last week, winter still has some life in her, and for many of us, that means we are stuck inside and not as active as we usually are.  If you have a hyper and energetic dog, keeping him contained in the darker, colder months can be a challenge at times. He wants to go out and play, but you would rather curl up on the couch with a good book or watch a movie. I mean, who really wants to go outside when Arctic winds are bearing down on you?

So, for those of you who are wondering if there are couch potato dogs, I did some research on your behalf at and found twelve breeds that fit the bill!  These breeds are known for their laid-back, easy-going style…the kinds of dogs that, if they were actually humans, you would probably meet up with them on a Friday after work over a beer or two and discuss the issues of the day.

Drum roll, please (and in no particular order, well, except alphabetical!)….here are the Top Twelve Laid Back, Easy-Going, Let’s Just Go with the Flow types of hounds…

  • Bulldog
  • Bull Mastiff
  • Chihuahua
  • Chinese Crested Dog
  • Clumber Spaniel
  • French Bulldog
  • Glen of Imaal Terrier
  • Japanese Chin
  • Mastiff
  • Pekingese
  • Pug
  • Shih Tzu

There you have it! If you want to kick back in style, then opt for one of these breeds! You will have a partner for life!
