Best Apartment Dog Breeds
Many of our residents chose to reside here at Liv Northgate because of, among other great reasons, our pet-friendly policy. With our Bark Park and dog grooming services, were committed to making sure that your pooch is as happy with Liv Northgate as you are! But if you didnt have a pet when you moved in, why not take advantage of the opportunity to find an animal companion now? To help you out, we went to PetGuide.com for their advice on the best dog breeds for apartment living. Cavalier King Charles Spaniel: These fellas are friendly and easy going, and tend to get along great with other tenants and their pets. Plus, they dont take up much space. Pug: Lets face itpugs are adorable. Theyre also compact and even-tempered, though youll want to make sure to give them regular walks to help them keep from getting too roly-poly. Bichon Frise: These adorable little dogs have lots of energy, so youll want to give them plenty of time in the Bark Park. But theyre much quieter than most people would expect, and theyre lots of fun to play with. Chinese Crested: Many people might not love the look of the Chinese Crested, but they are loving companions and well-suited to apartment living. Shih Tzu: Small, happy, and moderate in energy, Shih Tzus tend to be great apartment companions, as long as you dont mind grooming all of that hair! (But thats why we offer dog-grooming services, remember.) English Bulldog: Now, there are a few dog breeds that we cant allow here at Liv Northgate (usually because they have trouble playing well with others), one of which is the pit bull. But dont confuse pit bulls with English Bulldogs! There are several physical differences, but the important difference is temperament. The English Bulldog gets along with other dogs and loves to relax on the couch more than he loves to run around the park, which makes him a great apartment resident. Chihuahua: First, lets clear up one thingmost Chihuahuas arent hairless. Most have short coats of fur, while a few have quite long, flowing hair, and all of them are adorable. They tend to enjoy barking, but that can be trained down to minimal levels; and once thats done, youll have an affectionate, intelligent, fast-learning companion that will just love every bit of attention you give them. Great Dane: Yeah, theyre huge (25 to 29 inches tall and 100 to 200 pounds in weight), but thats not as much of a problem in an apartment as you might think. Why? Because these big guys are calm, quiet, and downright lazy. Theyre much less concerned with having lots of space to run around than they are with having a cozy spot to relax and enjoy your company. Boston Terrier: While several terrier breeds are prohibited by our pet policy, the friendly Boston Terrier is not one of them. These little guys tend to be clever and inquisitive, but theyre fairly quiet and usually happy with only moderate amounts of exercise. Yorkshire Terrier: Another great terrier breed, the Yorkie is cute, cuddly, compact, and reasonably quiet. Yorkies are usually great with now people and situations, to boot, so you dont have to worry about them causing trouble if you have people over.
