Please suggests a apartment friendly dog breed?

asked 2018-08-29 00:08:29 -0600

We are first time thinking to https://only4pets.com/ (Adopt pets online). We have no experience to handle a dog. Right now living in a 1500 sq.ft. 3rd floor flat. But will move into a ground floor after 6 months. Some breeder suggested me https://only4pets.com/ (only4Pets) But we are not sure . Please help.

I would recommend looking for a smaller, lower energy dog... There are some breeds that are lower energy than others, but it's also a question of individual dog personality--some dogs are just more couch potatoes. Go to a breeder or rescue society and look for a dog that isn't crazy with energy.

If you dont mind size or prefer a larger dog- I've found that ex racing gray hounds are perfect apartment dogs. Aka the fastest couch potatoes

I would definitely recommend small dogs for apartments. I had my first client to be a husky and although he was a puppy (7 months old) he was pretty big. He didn't destroy my apartment or anything but he was just so energetic that I took him outside like 8 times. And I don't have a backyard so it was really hard for me to keep him occupied the whole day. He would just get so bored easily.

Check out these links, trustworthy source.



Just stay away from working breeds / herding dogs/ sledding dogs / as these dogs need to work.

I went to hotpads and found my apartment for my dog. They list all pet friendly apartments in my area. I would recomend going there!
