Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all excellent attributes to look for when on the hunt for a well-suited apartment dog. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a happy dog that is more than happy to spend their days napping on the couch. They will barely bark, and are terrific 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 loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would include another pet or plenty of human interaction. The pug is content to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it ideal for a small home, it is very important that they receive correct training to avoid the yappy personality 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 quite great with other pets and children. While they can originally be somewhat difficult to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their tiny legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed perfect due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be terrific, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
