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 a well-suited apartment canine. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite 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 ideal home would include another pet dog or a lot 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 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 very great with other dogs and children. While they can at first be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed perfect due to their size, the Boston Terrier will call for a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be terrific, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
In temperament, the Brittany is friendly and eager to please. These friendly little dogs hunt more like a Setter due to their pointing ability, and are higher on their legs than other Spaniels. The Brittany does not require a heavy hand in training. In fact, they may quit if the discipline is too stern. Much more is accomplished with a gentle hand. They seek human attention, which makes them easier to train than some other hunting breeds. They make close working hunting dogs, fine companions, and family pets.
