Best Dog Breeds For Apartments


Your living arrangement is one of the most important factors when choosing a dog to become your new best friend. Some dogs are simply not suitable for living in small apartments and cramped spaces. On the other hand, some breeds are perfectly fine living in apartments and urban areas in general.

Our list is filled with these smaller, low-maintenance and quiet dogs that are perfect for apartment dwelling. If you are in a position where you are looking to adopt or buy a dog and do not have a huge house with a giant backyard, one of these will be just right for you.


Dachshunds are considered to be among the best dog breeds for apartment dwellers and the main reason is their small size. No matter how small the apartment, it is not going to be too small for these cute little dogs.

In addition to this, dachshunds are among the best family dogs due to their loveable disposition and their love for children. If you are a small family living in an apartment, these gorgeous small dogs will be the perfect choice.

It should be pointed out, however, that dachshunds can sometimes bark a bit more than the usual apartment dog. With a bit of training and proper “upbringing” this can be modified so that they keep their barking mostly for the outside world. Proper training is a must with dachshunds as they need structure and a strong leader.
