Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all great features to look for when on the hunt for a suitable apartment canine. 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 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 perfect home would involve another dog or a lot of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it ideal for a smaller home, it is very important that they receive correct 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 initially be somewhat difficult 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 call for a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be wonderful, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
