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 an ideal apartment pet dog. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheerful dog that is more than happy to spend their days snoozing 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 humble pug is a spirited and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would involve 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 needs minimal exercise, making it ideal for a smaller home, it is very essential that they receive appropriate 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 very great with other pet dogs and children. While they can initially be somewhat tough to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their little 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 fantastic, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
