Are Danish-Swedish Farmdogs Good For Apartments?

Well, Danish-Swedish Farmdog scores out of 5 in the scale of apartment friendly dogs when it comes to other breeds.

Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good characteristics to search for when on the hunt for an appropriate apartment canine. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheery dog that is more than happy to spend their days snoozing on the couch. They will rarely 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 lively and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another dog 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 requires minimal exercise, making it ideal for a smaller home, it is very crucial that they receive proper 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 extremely good with other pet dogs and children. While they can originally be somewhat difficult to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their little legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed right due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be wonderful, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.

Unlike the high-strung nature of the terrier, the nature of the DSF allows it to do its job, as well as be calm and loving during times without work. This makes it an ideal house companion. The DSF is a not a high energy dog, but loves having a job. The breed is new to the USA, and can only now start to be seen in sports such as flyball and dog agility. The DSF is also known for its excellent mousing skills and can perform sports such as going to ground and earthdog. They are also very speedy and quick, and love all types of lure coursing.
