Known for their small stature and smashed faces, pugs make ideal apartment dogs. This breed rarely gets very large and they love being around people so they will make the perfect companion. They also need little grooming so they will be easy to clean up after and you can keep their fur off of your furniture and surfaces. Since they are small, they will do fine with indoor exercise and they will be easy to walk on their leash as you navigate the community.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

If you’re looking for a pup that will keep you company and will thrive indoors and outdoors, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will be your best friend. These dogs typically stay around 18 pounds, making them great for apartment living. They are known to be great with people, young children, and other dogs so you can let them explore their new home without having to worry about them. They do require regular grooming so you will need to keep that in mind. A Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will welcome you home each time you walk through the door.

Golden Retriever

As one of the friendliest pet breeds, a Golden Retriever will thrive in almost any environment. While they are a large breed, these dogs love to snuggle and can fit in any space they see fit. They are fairly active dogs though so they will love getting to run and play at the community dog park and their outgoing personalities will ensure that they become quick friends with the other dogs in the neighborhood. They do shed some but the hard surface flooring in your home will make it easy to clean. A Golden Retriever is the epitome of “man’s best friend”.
