|If you say you hate having to walk your dogs I'm not sure there is a breed of dog that would be a good match here.
All need exercise, even larger lazier breeds.
NONE of the bird dog breeds work well here based on the information that's been given, the vast majority of those surrendered are surrendered after people tried to make the back yard thing work and it didn't. Labs, Goldens, Setters, Boxers, GSD's, Dalmations, Dobes...pretty much everything that's been suggested here, and all dog breeds in general, are going to need to go somewhere besides your yard regularly or they'll get frightfully bored and be unbearably unhappy.
What do you intend to do with the dog OP? How much actual daily exercise are you going to be willing to give it? Would a cat or other species perhaps be a good fit here? My cat is incredibly friendly, but also independent, tolerates kids better than any and has zero desire to go outside and be walked lol. Plenty are sleek coated and you can find loads of really big ones in shelters
