Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all excellent traits to search for when on the hunt for a well-suited apartment dog. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - In spite of appearances, the English Bulldog is an uplifting dog that is more than happy to spend their days snoozing on the couch. They will rarely bark, and are terrific 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 playful and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another pet or lots of human interaction. The pug is content to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized home, it is very essential that they receive appropriate 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 originally be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed perfect due to their size, the Boston Terrier will need a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be fantastic, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
