Are Caravan Hounds Good For Apartments?
Are you living in an apartment unit or flat and considering to get a Caravan Hound and need to know whether a Caravan Hound Dog is suitable for your apartment?
Well, Caravan Hound scores out of 5 in the scale of apartment friendly dogs when it comes to other dog breeds.
The Caravan Hound is not for life in an apartment. It does best in a home with access to a large, fenced yard. It does not fancy cold, wet climates. It is happiest outdoors, and is at home in tropical climates. If kept in a cold environment, extra protection such as winter coats and doggy boots are required. This is not the type of dog that does well living alone; it needs human interaction and must be an integrated member of the family. It will not handle being crated for long periods of time very well.
Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Canine Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good qualities to look for when on the hunt for an ideal apartment pet dog. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheery 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 humble pug is a spirited and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another pet or plenty of human interaction. The pug is satisfied to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua calls for minimal exercise, making it perfect for a small home, it is very crucial 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 extremely good with other pets 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 great due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be wonderful, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
Caravan Hound Information
The breed is above all a working hound, capable of providing an excellent performance in the field on a consistent basis, under gruelling conditions that would decimate most other dogs. They are elegant, graceful and courageous. Its physical strength couples with great speed and plenty of stamina to allow it to catch and kill several types of game, from hare to blackbuck, over rough country. It is not an ideal dog for the apartment dweller, as it needs a great deal of space and exercise; although if arrangements are made to exercise the dog regularly in a sufficiently large, safely fenced area, it may do well in a flat or any other dwelling. The breed, if treated with kindness and respect, can be exceptionally loyal. They are not very friendly, and do not like to be touched by strangers. However, a Caravan should never be aggressive, as this sort of temperament is not ideal for a hunting dog, which must tolerate other dogs and human beings, especially when they are not intruding on his territory. It makes a reasonable watch dog, and can protect that which he holds dear, should the need arise. He should always be treated in a kind, consistent, fair, and respectful manner, otherwise he may develop a nervous or vicious nature—either of which are difficult to live with.
