I may be a city dweller, but this has never stopped me from owning a lovable dog. These pets have been a part of my life for as long as I’ve been around, but the issue of owning one well suited to a city environment requires a bit of knowledge.
If you do live in an urban setting, I’m going to assume that you live in a smaller space without amenities like a yard, which make it easier to take care of your pet.
Since not every dog ends up going well in the city, owners must carefully select a breed when choosing a pet. If you’re lost for ideas, any one of the following breeds would make a great addition to your urban home.
Many people love the Dachshund in urban settings. Since they don’t typically need to run around much, they’re happy spending most of their time indoors. While walking them, you may find that they’re somewhat aggressive around other people and dogs, but they’re loyal breeds to their owners.
One of the most popular city dogs is the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. These are an extremely beloved breed, and they give the love right back. If you decide to get one, make sure to let your pet get some regular exercise. This will keep him or her as happy as can be.
If you want to go with something bigger, consider a Greyhound. Even though their incredible speed would lead you to believe that they need to spend a lot of time outside, they happen to be one of the lower energy breeds out there.
The Greyhound is happiest when inside, as they require little movement. They get bonus points for the fact that they bark less than almost any other breed, which means that your neighbors won’t complain about being woken late at night.
Perhaps the most popular option in cities is the mutt. When you think of the tens of thousands of dogs without a home, bringing one into your home can save a dog’s life.
