Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Pet Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all great qualities to look for when on the hunt for a suitable apartment canine. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a happy dog that is more than happy to spend their days napping 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 perfect home would involve another canine or plenty of human interaction. The pug is satisfied 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 important that they receive appropriate training to avoid the yappy personality they are known for. Weighing as little as 1kg, they are effortlessly carried around which is handy for individuals who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is very good with other dogs and children. While they can initially be somewhat tough to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed great 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.
Despite its sweet looks, the kuvasz is a tough protector, fearlessly defending its family or home. It is gentle with and protective of children in its own family, but it may misinterpret a child's rough-and-tumble games with other children as attacks on its child. It is reserved with strangers and may be aggressive toward strange dogs; however, it tends to be very gentle with other pets and livestock. It is devoted and loyal but not very demonstrative. Some can be domineering.
