Which Kind of Dogs Are Less Suited for Living in an Apartment?

Some kinds of dogs are not that suitable for apartment living.

When it comes down to living in an apartment, you want to bring your pets along for the ride, and this usually is a wonderful idea since Prescott Square Apartments is a pet-friendly community. However, some kinds of dogs are not suitable for this kind of lifestyle. Although you’ll find that a few breeds are restricted on leasing contracts, many are much better suited to live in a house with a big yard. This does not mean all of these kinds of dogs are restricted from living in Prescott Square’s community, but just keep in mind the headache they could cause for you and your neighbors. Read on to learn more!

Super Big Dogs

We all love ourselves big, energetic dogs, but a lot of them simply are not built for living inside of an apartment, especially if you have opted for a one-bedroom or a studio home. As these bigger breeds continue to grow, they can easily reach the food you have on the counter, and some have caused serious damage when they didn’t have ample space to run around and explore. You can always take them around for a walk by the playground and through the apartment complex, but when you’re away at work or on vacation for extended periods, they will become restless.

Energetic Dogs

All dogs need attention and exercise, but some of them more than others. Energetic dogs that are cooped up inside for too long will run around, disturbing the neighbors below you and causing severe damage. Even if you own a balcony or patio, high-energy dogs need plenty of space to run around and play in.

Noisy, Loud Dogs

Nobody likes to live near a noisy, yappy dog, especially if it is constant or occurs late at night and extremely early in the morning. If your dog is constantly barking and howling, he may not be suitable for living in an apartment unit where it is crucial to be considerate of your neighbors. Just make sure you’re being aware of your pets, as this can impact the comfort and the peace of other people in your community.
