Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Pet Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all good qualities to look for when on the hunt for an ideal apartment pet dog. Below is a list of the best apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - Despite appearances, the English Bulldog is a happy dog that is more than happy to spend their days napping on the couch. They will barely 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 lots of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment buddy.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua requires minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized home, it is very essential 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 individuals who travel.
4. Dachshund - Also known as the 'sausage dog', this friendly breed is extremely great with other canines and children. While they can initially be somewhat challenging to train, they only need a small amount of exercise, due to their little legs!
5. Boston Terrier - Another breed great due to their size, the Boston Terrier will need a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be terrific, caring breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
Bouncy, bold and busy, the Pomeranian makes the most of every day. It is curious, playful, self-confident (even cocky) and attentive, ever ready for a game or adventure. It is reserved toward strangers. Some can be aggressive toward other dogs. Some bark a lot.
