Personality, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all really good traits to search for when on the hunt for an ideal apartment pet 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 napping 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 modest pug is a playful and loyal dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would involve another pet dog or lots of human interaction. The pug is satisfied to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua needs minimal exercise, making it ideal 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 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 initially be somewhat difficult to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their very small legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed perfect due to their size, the Boston Terrier will require a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be wonderful, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
