Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Pet Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all excellent features 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 - Regardless of appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheerful dog that is more than happy to spend their days napping on the couch. They will rarely 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 playful and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another pet dog or a lot of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua needs minimal exercise, making it ideal for a smaller home, it is very crucial that they receive appropriate training to avoid the yappy personality 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 canines and children. While they can initially 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 call for a daily walk to stay pleased, but they can be terrific, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
The Komondor, being naturally wary of strangers, makes an excellent house guard dog. They are devoted to their master and will defend him against attack by any stranger. This trait makes it advisable that the dog only be used as a herd/flock guardian/protector, not for driving. When mature, the breed is an earnest, courageous, very faithful herd/flock guardian. While a puppy, the Komondor is playful.
