It is a fact of life that many of us work all day long. If this sounds like you and you want to add a dog to your family, you will have to choose your dog breed wisely. You don’t want a dog breed that is considered high maintenance, for example. Here are some of the best dog breeds for those who work all day.
Best Dog Breeds for Those Who Work All Day
Basset Hounds require minimal grooming care but in the evening, it is important they get some energetic playtime to ward off behavioral problems. Basset hounds are low energy dogs and usually, just sleep most of the day if no one is home.
Cairn Terriers, are small in size but rather sturdy dogs. They usually need to be brushed on a daily basis but because of their small size, this takes just minutes to complete. They, like the basset hound, will need some energetic playtime in the evening.
French Bulldogs are not very active dogs. Because of their short faces, breathing and running are sometimes hard for them, especially if it is hot and humid outside. They would rather just spend the day napping. Also, French Bulldogs are not barkers, ideal if you live in an apartment building.
Maltese dogs love nothing more than to relax on the back of the couch all day. They don’t get bored easily, so you don’t have to worry about them tearing up the house while you are gone. They do need to be brushed nightly, but since they are small in size, this doesn’t take a huge amount of time.
Greyhounds are sleek in stature and are affectionate and loyal. Even though these dogs are most often associated with greyhound racing, they don’t need to run around always.
Shar-peis are one of the easiest dog breeds to housetrain. They don’t require a great deal of grooming but they will need some run around exercise time in the evening.
