What dogs are not suitable for living in an apartment: they can destroy everything

Pets fill the lives of their owners with activity and fun, but you should take a responsible approach to choosing an animal. If you're looking for an obedient and easy-to-train dog, consider a Border Collie or Retriever. Dalmatians and pit bulls are not suitable for families with small children.

Some breeds, such as Bichon Frise and Pugs, do well in small city apartments. But others need more space. Read OBOZREVATEL's article on which dog breeds are not suitable for an apartment.

First of all, these are fighting breeds - bulldogs, abalays, mastiffs, and rottweilers. If they are not brought up properly from childhood, you can get a wayward dog that will not obey the owner's commands and will start to lunge at passers-by on the street. Fighting dogs can be aggressive towards children. Even seemingly kind and well-mannered representatives of such breeds can inadvertently play and bite a person. In an apartment, such dogs can make a real mess - break dishes, gnaw furniture, tear up carpets.

The second category is dogs that need a lot of movement. Huskies, Malamutes, Border Collies, Labradors are very active breeds, and it will be difficult for them to sit inside four walls all day. They will suffer, and depression can lead to more serious consequences that will affect the health and behaviour of your pet. Choose a breed based on its needs and characteristics. More calm and lazy dogs, such as pugs or Pekingese, are suitable for an apartment.

German shepherds, Jack Russells, spaniels, and dachshunds also need to be active and take frequent walks. If they don't have the opportunity to get their energy out, it can lead to unexpected consequences. Previously sweet and obedient dogs will begin to "take revenge" on the owner by marking the territory or chewing on shoes.

Previously OBOZREVATEL told about the breeds of dogs that will be the best guards for home and family.
