If your Friday nights are more about Netflix than a night on the town, you’re going to love these best dog breeds for homebodies.
Most dogs love to run around, play and spend a lot of time being active.
While there is nothing wrong with an active dog, not all of us have the time, energy, or, in some cases, the physical capability, to visit the dog park every single day.
If you’re a more relaxed type of pet owner, you may be looking for a dog that is suitable for your low-key lifestyle.
While there isn’t a single dog that doesn’t need daily exercise, there are some breeds that are a bit more on the easy scale.
Here are 10 of the best dog breeds for homebodies.
