Top 10 Best Dog Breeds For Apartments

Sure, he may take up more room in the apartment and on the couch, but Great Dane will be more of a fixture than an energetic force to be reckoned with.

7. Great Dane: Now, hear us out. Yes, we realize that the Great Dane is huge (25 to 29 inches tall and 100 to 200 pounds in weight), but this big fella is as lazy as he is big. Sure, he may take up more room in the apartment and on the couch, but he’ll become more of a fixture than an energetic force to be reckoned with. He’s calm, friendly and quiet – what more could you ask for in a roommate for your small living space? (Photo credit: Eric Isselee/Shutterstock)

    I think shih tzu’s are the best apartment dogs because they’re not all that energetic and the never shed. Ever. Though you have to pamper them every now and then and they tend to be “adorably” stubborn but other than that, they’re great apartment dogs.

      chi-weenies are quite wonderful, too. They do shed…but that doesn’t stop the love bring

    Are these even dogs? With the exception of the Great Dane they all look like something you would find in Paris Hilton’s handbag. Pass!

    What, no Greyhounds? If you like big dogs and are in an apartment why go to a breeder for a Great Dane when there are tons of retired racing Greyhounds that need homes (for the record, it’s pretty easy to find retired Greys as young as 1 or 2 years old). They’re incredibly low energy, have no major health issues, and are some of the most cuddly and affectionate dogs in the world. They almost never bark, are almost always (mostly) housebroken by the time you adopt them, and sleep for about 18 hours a day (curled up into nice space saving compact balls). I have two Greys in an 1100 sq ft apartment and we probably have space for 2 or 3 more. Any list of best apartment dog breeds is incomplete without Greys!!!

    I had a French Bulldog in a small apartment. Never had any real problems. To be honest, I don’t think I can do with any other breed ever again..
