At Abberly Green we welcome dogs of non-aggressive breeds. However, for your dog to be happy in an apartment it is important he or she gets enough of the right kind of exercise.
The key to keeping any dog in an apartment is providing enough exercise. Dogs have retained the instinct to migrate. So, even small dogs need to be taken out for daily walks. High energy dogs can live in an apartment too if you take them out for long walks or jogs.
Enough of the right kind of daily exercise is the key to keeping any dog stable and happy. The right kind of exercise drains both the dog’s physical and mental energy. Only providing excited exercise, such as playing with other dogs or tossing a ball does not drain the dog’s mental energy. Not draining your dog’s mental energy keeps them in an excited state of mind.
Almost any dog can live in an apartment if they get enough of the right kind of exercise and you have a wide range of non-aggressive breeds to choose from.
If you plan to jog every day with your dog you could even get a higher energy dog even though you are in an apartment. But if you plan on only jogging 2 or 3 times a week and walking the dog the remaining days, you should go with a medium energy or lower energy dog.
The thing to remember when choosing a dog to live with you in your apartment in Mooresville, NC is to not necessarily shop by breed, but to look at the energy level of breed.
