Top Dog Breeds for Apartment Living
The friendly and playful Maltese is an amazing pup for the apartment dweller! Weighing in at just 4-7 pounds, they are elegant but not pretentious and don’t require heavy exercise. They can even be trained to use a pee pad indoors on particularly hot or cold days! They are hypoallergenic and benefit from regular grooming.
Yorkshire Terriers, or Yorkies, are famously well adapted to apartment living. They are hypoallergenic, weigh just 4-12 pounds, and are easy to train. Yorkies are intelligent and full of personality, and love being a loyal sidekick to their people!
Bred for companionship for centuries, Shih Tzus have been the choice of pup for people from all walks of life. They are a small dog who prefers cuddling and family activities over wild shenanigans, and are at home in almost any setting! You will fall in love with your Shih Tzu’s inquisitive nature and adorable cheerfulness.
If you struggle with allergies to most dogs, consider a Bichon Poo! They are hypoallergenic due to their extremely low shedding habits. With their bouncy personality and love of play and social interactions, your Bichon Poo will bring out your zest for life and help you see the joy of each day!
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
A Cavalier is an even-tempered, loving, calm, and playful pup who is at home in any environment. They’re laid back and easy to train. A daily walk is a perfect amount of exercise for your pup and they will adapt wonderfully to high-rise living or a more rural apartment setting. They are wonderful with families and other pets and will enchant your family and friends!
Poms are a truly iconic dog! They’re an immediately recognizable beautiful ball of fluff. They can be trained to use a pee pad indoors as needed, which can be a huge benefit for apartment living. They enjoy walks through the neighborhood and clearly see themselves as the undisputed master of all they survey! Despite weighing just 3-7 pounds, a Pomeranian is filled to the brim with confidence and a vivacious and inquisitive spirit.
