Best 5 Apartment-Friendly Dog Breeds
Temperament, bark-levels and a low-energy count are all great characteristics to look for when on the hunt for an appropriate apartment pet dog. Below is a list of the top apartment frinedly breeds.
1. English Bulldog - In spite of appearances, the English Bulldog is a cheerful 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 lively and faithful dog. Pugs are a social breed, so their ideal home would involve another dog or a lot of human interaction. The pug is happy to laze about all day, making him the perfect apartment pal.
3. Chihuahua - While the Chihuahua needs minimal exercise, making it perfect for a smaller sized home, it is very vital that they receive correct 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 very good with other pets and children. While they can originally be somewhat hard 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 call for a daily walk to stay happy, but they can be fantastic, affectionate breed who will remain mostly inactive while indoors.
The Weimaraner is bold and rambunctious, sometimes too much so for small children. It loves to run and hunt and can become frustrated and destructive if kept penned up. It can be stubborn or headstrong. It functions best with an active owner who enjoys outdoor activities and wants a fun-loving companion.
