When we talk of submissive dog breeds, we don't mean these are dogs which lack character. We mean easy going dog breeds who respond well to training, are not known for difficulty in socializing and generally get along well with everybody. Submissive dog breeds equally are not those which you can boss around and treat mean. They need love and care just as any dog needs.
Submissive dog breeds have the reputation of being low maintenance, low energy and naturally calm. Many of the dog breeds on this list are just like that, but some are simply very intelligent animals which like to do tasks. They naturally want to please their family and be an equal part of it. Some of these dogs are good house dogs which don't need as much exercise as others. Some are boundless and need extra time for walks.
