Best Dog Breeds for Condos

Moving to a pet-friendly condominium like Pines Peak is exciting, especially if you’ve always wanted to own a dog. Dogs are sweet and loyal creatures that have the ability to take your stress away with their adorable charisma. If you plan to get a dog but have no idea what breed is suitable for you, there are various dog breeds that are low maintenance, making them ideal for condos. When getting a dog, it is essential to take your lifestyle into consideration. The needs of every dog depend on its traits, which is why it is necessary to do a little research to find a dog breed that is suitable to your lifestyle and environment. 

What Dog Breed is Suitable for You?

Getting a dog comes with many responsibilities and requires serious commitment, which is why before getting one, it is essential to find a dog that matches your personality. If you are looking for a dog suitable for your condo, here are the best dog breeds to choose from:

  • Maltese - Maltese is an ancient dog breed belonging to the small category. The average weight of Maltese is 3 to 4 kilograms for adult females and 7 to 10 kilograms for adult Maltese. Maltese dogs have a shiny white coat with traits similar to human hair, allowing owners to grow the hair long. Maltese dogs are well-behaved, making them excellent show dogs. If you have a busy schedule, Maltese is among the most suitable pets for you as they have low wanderlust and enjoy sleeping most of the day. Although they are cuddly and sweet, Maltese dogs also enjoy their personal space. 
  • Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - Another member of the small dog breeds, this dog breed is known for its long ears and affectionate attitude. Spaniel dogs are among the most suitable breeds for condos as they rarely bark, saving you from the worries of getting reported by your neighbors. Like Maltese, Spaniel does not require extreme physical exercise and will be fine with short morning or afternoon walks. However, Spaniel dogs do not like being alone, which is why this dog is suitable for those working from home as they do not mind if their owners are busy as long as they have company. Spaniel dogs are also friendly to other animals, making them the ideal breed for those planning to get other pets in the future. 
  • Shih Tzu - If you want a ball of energy, Shih Tzu is the ideal dog for you. Shih Tzu dogs are playful, making them the perfect companion for those with an active lifestyle. Shih Tzus are also easy to feed as they are not picky eaters like most small breeds, making them easier to maintain. Although playful and affectionate, Shih Tzu also enjoys having alone time. Like Maltese, Shih Tzus’ fur also grows long, making them an excellent breed for dog shows. 

Doing some research about the traits of each dog breed before making a decision will save you and your pet from future troubles. Getting a dog is like rearing for a child, you have to put in more time and effort, and if you are not ready for that, it is better to wait until you are sure that you can fully commit to taking care of a dog and providing for its needs.
