Are Norwegian Buhunds Good For Apartments?
Are you living in an apartment unit or flat and considering to adopt a Norwegian Buhund and need to know whether a Norwegian Buhund Dog is suitable for your apartment?
Well, Norwegian Buhund scores out of 5 in the scale of apartment friendly dogs when it comes to other breeds.
The Norwegian Buhund would do best living in a house with at least a small fenced-in yard. These dogs are very active and should get plenty of chances to exercise. They can, however, live in an apartment if extra care is given for sufficient exercise and the apartment is fairly big for the dog to move around.
Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all good traits to look for when on the hunt for a suitable apartment canine. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - In spite of appearances, the English Bulldog is an uplifting dog that is more than happy to spend their days sleeping on the couch. They will rarely bark, and are great 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 dog or a lot of human interaction. The pug is content to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment friend.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized home, it is very important that they receive proper 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 extremely good with other canines and children. While they can originally be somewhat hard 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, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
Norwegian Buhund Information
While Norwegian Buhunds make excellent watch dogs, they are also content to lie at your feet at the end of a hard day. Training wise, the Buhund is considered by many to be the most trainable of the Spitz breeds, but obedience training is still a necessity. Because the Buhund was born to herd and sound the alarm, the Buhund needs training and a job to do. Because they are happiest near their owner, they have earned the nickname, “the friendly spitz.”
