Our guide to the best lazy dog names

Some people get a dog and are surprised and exhausted by its relentless energy. Others get one and can’t seem to convince their dog to leave the couch. There’s no doubt some dogs are just plain lazy, and it seems more common with breeds like English Bulldogs, Pugs and King Charles Spaniels.

If you’ve adopted a dog that shakes its head at the idea of a morning walk, that’s probably why you’ve landed on this list of lazy dog names. Even if your dog isn’t lazy, or if it’s too soon to figure that out, lazy dog names can be hilarious choices for fat, round dogs. Here are some of the names we love the most.

For male dogs, we can’t help but laugh at the name Slacker. It has an old-fashioned sound to it, even though we’ve rarely heard this name given to a dog, and it really sums up your pup’s opposition to doing anything physically active.

Laziness also invokes the image of the famous animated dog, Droopy. If you have a Bassett Hound, this is an obvious choice, but even for other breeds it really gives that drowsy, lazy vibe. We also love Couch as an under-the-radar option. While this name might seem too obvious, or too abstract, it pays homage to your pup’s favourite place and seems to be a hilariously ironic spin on the name Coach.

For female dogs, Pokey is a great choice for a lazy pup. At two syllables and ending in a vowel, it’s extremely suitable for dogs to recognize, and carries the meaning “annoyingly slow”. What could be more fitting than that for a couch potato?!

We also love Siesta, which perfectly encapsulates the afternoon nap, and brings an exotic touch if you’re not a native Spanish speaker. And for an unconventional choice, you could name your lazy girl Betty. We’ve got nothing against the name, but it’s just a reference to the Lazy Betty restaurant and the movie The Big Betty.
