Low-Energy Dog Breeds

Active and energetic dogs are great, but they aren’t suited for all environments. If you live in an upstairs apartment in a cold-weather city, for example, you may prefer a mellow dog breed who prefers snoozing on his dog bed to chasing after a ball in a park. Additionally, if you aren’t an overly active person, you may not want an energetic dog who needs lots of playtime and exercise. Explore all the mellow, low-energy dog breeds below to find the right one for you.
