Some Dogs Need Space

Some Dogs Need Space

Living in a small flat or apartment doesn’t necessarily mean that you can’t welcome a pet dog into your home – but there are certain breeds that simply can’t be expected to flourish in such an environment.

Before setting your heart on a particular breed it’s important to think what type of dog will work best with your lifestyle and living arrangements.

1. Saint Bernard

1. Saint Bernard

The enormous Saint Bernard can tip the scales at up to 180 pounds, so it's pretty obvious that they're not suited to living in close confines. As well as needing space to stretch out in, this dog's thick fur can get quite smelly - a particular problem when it's impossible to escape the doggy odour.

2. Beagle

2. Beagle

The Beagle needs regular outdoor time throughout the day, otherwise this easily-bored breed has a tendency to bark, howl and become destructive. Your neighbours will thank you for not welcoming a Beagle into your flat.

3. Border Collie

3. Border Collie

The Border Collie is both the world's most intelligent dog, and one of the most energetic. A lack of constant stimulation can cause them to become aggitated and stressed - meaning housing this dog in a small flat is tantamount to cruelty.

4. Dalmation

4. Dalmation

Another energetic dog, if the spotty Dalmation doesn't get all three of its essentials - space, company and stimulation - they will take it out on your furniture and anything else they can get their paws on.

5. Springer Spaniel

5. Springer Spaniel

The athletic Springer Spaniel needs plenty of space both indoors and outdoors to run around, so will likely cause damage by dashing around smaller flats. They also shed lots of hair all year round which can be an issue in a confined space.

6. Australian Shepherd

6. Australian Shepherd

The Australian Shepherd, as the name would suggest, is a dog that has been bred to herd animals in the vast expanses of Australia. A small city flat couldn't be further away from their natural environment and may even make this most friendly of breeds turn aggressive.

7. German Shepherd

7. German Shepherd

There's not much a German Shepherd can't do - they are brilliant at most things, from being guard dogs to being emotional support animals - but living in a flat is well outwith their comfort zone. They are easily bored, need regular outdoor time and can be very noisy.

8. Vizsla

8. Vizsla

Known as a 'velcro' dog, the Vizsla clings to its owner like glue so can't be left alone for long. It also needs so many walks that you'll never be done popping up and down to the local park. If a Vizla isn't kept happy it will be noisy and chew your possessions - and you'll only have yourself to blame.

9. Siberian Husky

9. Siberian Husky

The fiercely-independent Siberian Husky can become destructive if not given enough room - and may even try to escape. They also have a habit of howling when not happy, making their displeasure clear to people for miles around.

10. Airedale Terrier

10. Airedale Terrier

The perfect home for an active Airedale Terrier has constant access to a large outdoor space to allow the dog to range freely. This is not a canine suited to urban living.
