Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good traits to search for when on the hunt for an ideal apartment dog. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a happy 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 humble pug is a playful and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would include another pet dog or lots of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized home, it is very essential that they receive proper training to avoid the yappy personality they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are easily carried around which is handy for individuals who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is very great with other pet dogs and children. While they can originally be somewhat tough to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their tiny legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed great due to their size, the Boston Terrier will need a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be wonderful, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
Andalusian Hound Information
Andalusian Podencos, like other hounds, have excellent sight, hearing and smell, which makes them good hunters, often employed for hunting rabbits. Andalusians and mastiffs form the heart of the rehalas (teams of 20 to 24 hunting dogs) of central and southern parts of the Iberian Peninsula; medium and smaller dogs search out deer or wild boar, whilst the larger hounds are used for attacking the prey. One of the most typical functions of the large Andalusian hound was that of the so-called quitaor accompanying the Spanish greyhound colleras during hare hunting. The quitaor‘s job consisted primarily of flushing out the hares from their home or hiding place and killing them; then, together with the greyhounds, retrieving them for the owner. In Andalusian farmhouses the larger hounds were used as watchdogs, and the smaller hounds were used to kill rodents.
