Apartment Living for Dog Lovers (Infographic)

We love our furry best friends of all breeds and sizes. If you’re living in a small space, it doesn’t necessarily mean you need to have a little pet. While some pet parents worry about a larger animal’s welfare in tighter living quarters, it may be dependent on the dog’s breed. There are some mammoth canine mammals that are happy and healthy living in apartments. Two breeds instantly come to mind: The Great Dane (as shown below) and the Greyhound.

Many think these dogs need plenty of space and exercise, but they are actually some of the biggest couch potatoes in the canine group. Both of these bruisers are known to sleep the majority of the day and are known as “the gentle giants” in the dog world. Read on for more tips about living with your dog in an apartment.

Many "large" breeds and mixes are better candidates. For instance, Great Danes and Greyhounds are couch potatoes whereas a "small" terrier may be too loud and frantic for apartment living.

Awww lovely post. Behaviour issues should be considered, but also size. What if your apartment is small? Will you have a great Dane? It does not make sense. Sharing as well!

Its not the size of the dog, but their behavior/lifestyle that you should focus on!
