9 Low-Maintenance Dogs You Barely Need to Walk

1. Bulldog

The bulldog is probably the dog breed that gets a bad name for being lazy. The French Bulldog is smaller and more compact than the English Bulldog.

2. Dachshund

"Their short legs and small frame cannot take on too much, so short walks every day and some moderate playtime can suffice, and of course, lots of cuddling and relaxation."

3. Chihuahua

Chihuahuas shouldn't weigh more than six pounds and be taller than eight inches. They "can usually get enough exercise in a very small space" because of this.

4. Maltese

If you're looking for a low-maintenance breed that's also very affectionate, a Maltese is perfect.

5. Pembroke Welsh Corgi

They're about the size of a golf ball but don't need too much work, and they're small enough to handle easily.

6. Pekingese

As a play breed, they don't weigh more than 14 pounds. Their long hair around their face and neck is called a "lion's mane," and it looks great. 

7. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels "depend on their owner's lifestyle, can be happy athletes or shameless couch potatoes."

8. Spinone Italiano

The U.S. is still getting this Italian breed of dog, but they're a great choice if you want a medium- to large-sized dog that is also pretty easy to take care of.

9. English Mastiff

There are some big dog types that are also very easy to take care of, believe it or not.  That the English Mastiff, which can weigh up to 200 pounds, doesn't need much exercise.
