Are Dingos Good For Apartments?
Are you living in an apartment unit or flat and wanting to get a Dingo and want to know whether a Dingo Dog is suitable for your apartment?
Well, Dingo scores out of 5 in the scale of apartment friendly dogs compare to other dog breeds.
The Dingo is not recommended for apartment life. They are wild dogs that if taken into a family, must not be chained up in a backyard, but should be taken in as part of the family. A securely fenced enclosure is a must. A Dingo needs activity and space. As pets they should not be taken off the leash in a park. They can withstand hot climates.
Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Canine Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all great attributes to search for when on the hunt for a well-suited apartment dog. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Regardless of appearances, the English Bulldog is a happy dog that is more than happy to spend their days snoozing 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 loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another dog or lots of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment friend.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua needs 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 individuals who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is extremely great with other pets and children. While they can at first be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small 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 terrific, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
