Getting a dog has to be one of the most fun things in the world, but it’s also a huge responsibility being placed on your shoulders. Dogs aren’t just a pet, they become a part of your family – and they require a lot of care, time, and effort. Unlike cats, dogs can’t just hang out in your house all day long and use a litter box. They need to be taken out for walks so they can use the bathroom, they require a little bit more attention, and, oftentimes, they also require a lot more physical activity. This can be intimidating for anyone who is not super active.
Fortunately, though there are options for people who want dogs but don’t really have the time to dedicate to long walks every single day or lots of exercise and playtime outside. A dog is always going to need attention and some sort of walk (it’s good for them!), but there are certain breeds that are a lot less active. These dogs will love to hang out inside with you and cuddle on the couch or the bed, usually as long as they’re getting plenty of attention. They’re a bit more low-key and low-maintenancethan a more active dog.
