Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Canine Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good traits to look 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 napping 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 ideal home would include another canine or lots of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua calls for minimal exercise, making it ideal for a smaller sized home, it is very vital that they receive correct training to avoid the yappy personality 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 very good with other pet dogs and children. While they can at first be somewhat tough to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their tiny 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 terrific, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
Beaucerons are uncannily intelligent and adept at any task involving learning, memory, and reasoning. They are courageous and calm, and make reliable, thoughtful guardians. This is an extremely loyal breed that is eager to please its family; however, if not properly trained, the Beauceron can run the family. Beaucerons are patient with children, but can be overwhelming to them or try to herd them. They may be wary of strangers and do not take to unfamiliar dogs. They can get along with other family dogs and pets.
