Apartment Dogs

Visit any big city, and you'll see dogs of all sizes and shapes romping in the parks and walking down the streets. Many of these dogs and their families live in apartments, which shows that dogs and apartments DO mix.

Choosing the Right Apartment Dog
The truth is, any dog can live in any apartment IF he gets enough exercise, but some breeds are cut out for it better than others. Contrary to popular belief, size isn’t actually the most important factor in apartment living- great apartment dogs come in all shapes and sizes. If you’re looking for a dog that’s right for your dog family and apartment, look for a breed with these traits:

• Laid back personality
• Low to moderate exercise needs
• Low tendency to bark
