Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good traits to search for when on the hunt for a suitable apartment dog. 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 fantastic 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 lively and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would involve another dog or plenty of human interaction. The pug is satisfied 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 essential that they receive proper training to avoid the yappy character 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 extremely great with other canines and children. While they can originally be somewhat difficult to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed right due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
Northern Inuit Dog Information
The Northern Inuit dog is not for the novice owner as they can be very stubborn and are very quick-witted. The owner of a Northern Inuit must show themselves to be a strong leader or be prepared to be the underdog, and be taken advantage of. They are more difficult to train than other, more biddable breeds. Separation anxiety may arise when they are left alone and unsupervised too long, leading to destructive behaviours but training to be left from a young age will rectify this. Training from the onset is a must for this breed. Often, they will do better with another dog for company. Socialization should begin when vaccinated and throughout as their play can be very rough and misinterpreted.
