Lazy Japanese dogs

Dogs in Japan seem quite lazy to me. Or it might be the owners making them lazy… but I came across several little and medium sized dogs being carried or even pushed in special dog prams as if it was the most normal thing in the world.

One dog owner told me that her dog didn’t like going for walks.

Very different from the western world where we believe that dogs need to be walked outside as much as possible!

But could it be that this is the future? Humans ran around a lot more in ancient times. Books like “Born to Run” argue that our old old ancestors hunted on foot and ran down their prey for miles and miles. Now most of us can hardly run a 5k. Maybe dogs will end up like us! Watching dog movies, playing video games of virtual dog walks…
