Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Pet Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all good characteristics to look for when on the hunt for a suitable apartment pet dog. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is an uplifting dog that is more than happy to spend their days napping 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 humble pug is a spirited and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another pet 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 calls for minimal exercise, making it ideal for a smaller home, it is very crucial that they receive appropriate training to avoid the yappy character they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are effortlessly carried around which is handy for people who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is quite good with other pet dogs and children. While they can at first be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their tiny 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.
