The Best Dog Breeds to Own in an Apartment Home

Unlike many apartment home communities, Arcadia Run allows our residents to have pets, as we want to offer you the best experience possible! If living a fulfilled life includes coming home to your pet everyday, we are excited to let you know that this is possible at Arcadia Run. As many of us already know there are certain dog breeds that are best when living in an apartment home, and we want to share some of them with you below!

Bichon Frise: Ask anyone who owns a Bichon Frise, these dogs are typically the perfect size for an apartment home, and although playful, they do not bark as often as other small breeds.

Maltese: If you want a dog, but don’t want the hassle of cleaning up dog hair, this breed is the perfect fit. Maltese’s do not shed and are very affectionate towards owners, so they make great companions!

Boston Terrier: Because of their compact size, this breed is perfect for apartment living, but they do need plenty of walking, as they are very energetic from time to time.

Havanese: Another small dog, Havanese do not shed and are very snuggly and clingy with owners. Although this breed generally prefers lounging around inside, they are still very playful, but not overly jumpy or yappy.

Chihuahua: Although all of the dogs on our list are quite small, this one takes the cake. With little need for exercise, and a great relationship with their owner, a Chihuahua may be the best dog breed for you!

Pug: If you travel a lot, or are often times away from your apartment home, this would not be the best breed since they can be clingy. A loyal breed, Pugs are quiet, quite lazy, and very small!

Toy Fox Terrier: A very intelligent breed, Toy Fox Terriers are very easy to train and are small enough for any apartment. They love to cuddle and depending on the personality, may not need a ton of regular exercise besides short walks.

Daschund: The cuteness of this breed alone is enough to convince us that they would make a perfect pet for anyone, but their small size helps too. With short legs, it is easy to exercise this dog inside or outside.

French Bulldog: This is another breed that rarely barks unless given a reason to, and they are compact for apartment dwellers. They are very playful and do best with lots of human contact.
