Dog breeds that love to sleep
Looking for a special companion that sleeps in bed with you? Or maybe a dog that likes to take a long afternoon nap? Here are 15 breeds that seem to like to sleep more than any other.

1 – Bulldog.

Not much to say here, we all know these dogs are lazy and love naps. They might be the best choice for a snuggle buddy as long as you don’t mind the snoring.

5 – French Bulldog

Although French Bulldogs can be wild and crazy – full of energy when they meet you – don’t let that fool you. This is the kind of dog that eats breakfast and then goes back to bed.

6 – Pekingese

The quintessential lap dog, the Pekingese loves to curl up and sleep, no doubt about it. After all, they were originally worn in the robes of Chinese emperors, so what do you think they were doing in there? Playing poker?

7 – Greyhound

At first you might think, what? But it actually makes a lot of sense. Greyhounds are sprinters, not long distance runners. And after sprinting, they need to replenish their energy with a long nap.

8 – Lhasa Apso

The Lhasa loves to play with you, but will quickly settle in for a nap on the couch afterwards. Can’t find yours? Check your bed, he’s probably sleeping in it.

10 – Saint Bernard

Another great dog that loves to sleep. It’s a good thing, too, because no one would want a 180-pound St. Bernard acting like a border collie in their house.

11 – Chow Chow

The Chow Chow is probably the most “feline” of the purebred dogs and is known for sleeping a lot. But if you’re looking for someone to snuggle with, don’t look here: most of the time, this breed likes to sleep alone.

After a brisk walk, most Cocker Spaniels have no problem taking a nap in the late morning, afternoon or evening, or all of the above.

14 – Pug

Just like the Frenchie, once the excitement of seeing you wears off and he’s had a few treats, it’s nap time for the Pug. He doesn’t mind the nap at all.

15 – Great Pyrenees

This breed was bred to watch their flock graze calmly and quietly unless a predator surprises them. So it’s no wonder napping doesn’t bother them that much. So expect to nap most of the day, unless something happens.
