Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Canine Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good qualities to search for when on the hunt for an appropriate apartment dog. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - In spite of appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheerful dog that is more than happy to spend their days snoozing on the couch. They will barely bark, and are great with children in spite of their stocky build which has them weighing upwards of 22kg!
2. Pug - Love them or hate them, the modest pug is a spirited and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would include another pet or a lot of human interaction. The pug is satisfied to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua calls for minimal exercise, making it perfect for a small home, it is very vital that they receive appropriate training to avoid the yappy character they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are effortlessly carried around which is handy for individuals who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is extremely good with other dogs and children. While they can initially be somewhat challenging to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed perfect due to their size, the Boston Terrier will call for a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
The Africanis is well disposed without being obtrusive: a friendly dog showing watchful territorial behaviour. The breed is independent and territorial, but highly trainable. They can however, become grumpy as they grow older, and may also become quite difficult when kept with other dogs in a pack.
