We often live in the apartment but the desire to have a dog on our side that shares with us the days remains so much: hence the question that haunts us, what are the dogs from apartment?
Which race could I choose, which one fits most at home?
For apartment dogs we mean those types of breed that have the physical and psychological characteristics that are best suited to a life at home.
Mind you, all the dogs like contact with families and being able to live in contact with the habits of home, but at the same time, many of them have a need for very high energy outlet that is ill-suited to hours spent in an apartment .
When we decide to take a dog at home with us, in fact, we must not make a choice dictated only by personal taste, sometimes often purely aesthetic for a particular dog, but above all we must make a careful assessment of life and time that we can dedicate .
Unfortunately we often want a large dog but we have a very small apartment or a dog with a great liveliness and instead we work 8 hours a day.
Notwithstanding that any dog that remains alone more than 5 hours per day in a row, may suffer from loneliness and we may need help in the management by a Dog Sitter or a friend, there are dogs that adapt more to a life at home, the so-called house dogs.
That is why in the Classification of breeds F.C.I (International Cynological Federation) the breeds are divided into 10 groups, each of which represents the different type of dog divided according to physical appearance and character predisposition.
We will therefore have, for example, the groups of the lupoids, of the molossoids, of the terriers, of the dachshunds, of the greyhounds and of the companion dogs.
The group of pet dogs is quite numerous and includes only small dogs but subdivided in turn by different types.
