Some people think that a calm dog is a lazy dog. This is not the case. Many of the dog breeds we present to you here are energetic and need to be walked often to ensure their needs are met. Their disposition, however, is calm and balanced. Others may be dog breeds which are full of energy (particularly small dog breeds), but cannot keep it up for long.
No dog is truly lazy, but many breeds are more prone to slower movement and spending more time resting and lying down. This may be related to health problems or simple character traits common to the breed. However, regardless of breed, a happy dog is more likely to be calm and gentle. Reading the information here about care and temperament will help you to best keep your dog balanced, calm, happy and healthy.
