Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all good features to look for when on the hunt for a well-suited apartment canine. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is an uplifting dog that is more than happy to spend their days snoozing on the couch. They will barely 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 spirited and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their perfect home would involve another pet or plenty 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 sized home, it is very vital that they receive correct 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 quite great with other canines and children. While they can at first be somewhat hard to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed right due to their size, the Boston Terrier will need a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be wonderful, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
