Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Pet Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all great characteristics to look for when on the hunt for an ideal apartment pet dog. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Regardless of appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheerful dog that is more than happy to spend their days sleeping on the couch. They will barely bark, and are fantastic 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 lively and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another pet dog or plenty of human interaction. The pug is satisfied to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment friend.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua needs minimal exercise, making it ideal for a small home, it is very crucial that they receive appropriate training to avoid the yappy character they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are easily carried around which is handy for people who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is extremely good with other canines and children. While they can initially be somewhat difficult to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed right due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
