Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds

1. English Bulldog - Regardless of 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 terrific 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 playful and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would involve another canine 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 needs minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller home, it is very vital that they receive proper training to avoid the yappy personality 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 very good with other canines and children. While they can initially be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their little legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed great 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.
