Top 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all excellent attributes to look for when on the hunt for an ideal 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 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 loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would include another dog 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 needs minimal exercise, making it ideal for a smaller home, it is very essential that they receive correct 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 quite good with other dogs and children. While they can at first be somewhat tough to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their little 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 fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
