Not all dog breeds are suitable for living in city apartments. Large dogs, such as St. Bernards, Bernese Mountain Dogs, or Huskies, need space. In addition, experts do not recommend keeping dogs of fighting breeds in apartments.

Not only the size and weight of the dog are important, but also its temperament. OBOZREVATEL figured out which breeds get along best in an apartment.

Some dogs get along well with children and have a mischievous nature. Other breeds are more balanced and calm; they don't need too much movement and won't require much attention from you. Some dogs love walks and outdoor games, while others are more passive and lazy. Some breeds are easy to train, while others require more time and patience.

All these nuances should be taken into account when choosing a pet to live in a city apartment because even for a large apartment, small and medium-sized dogs are better suited.
