Buying a condo for sale along EDSA may not be that easy for dog lovers. With most condo associations discouraging pets inside the complex, you need to find a condo that will welcome not just you, but your furry baby as well.
When you’re living in a condo, every inch counts. This is why when it comes to your pets, size matters. Taking care of a pet can get a bit overwhelming, especially if you don’t really have the space for it. But if you’re one of those people who can’t live without a dog in tow, it’s just a matter of choosing the right breed that will suit your living space and personality.
Here’s our top picks of dog breeds that are perfect for condo living.
The rule of thumb is, if the dog can fit in your bag, then it can definitely fit in your condo! Weighing at around 4 pounds, the Chihuahua can win your heart over with its affectionate demeanour. It’s also considered to be one of the most intelligent breeds around so you’ll have a lot of fun training it to do tricks. The only problem is its tendency to bark incessantly, so you might want to start early training on this one.
If you’re not really the high maintenance type of dog owner, this medium sized dog is the best breed to have. Since it doesn’t really like to move around much, you can both get lazy and cuddle on the couch without having to feel guilty about it. But make sure to take it out for regular walks, at least.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
One of the reasons why this breed is quite popular with condo dwellers is its natural calm. With its ability to adapt easily to new surroundings, you’ll seldom see the Cavalier King get agitated. If you’re looking for a friendly dog that will play nice with other dogs in your complex, then this would make the perfect addition to your family.
Although this breed doesn’t need that much room to be happy, the Shih Tzu requires a whole lot of pampering from its owners. This small breed can make the perfect companion if you’re looking for a dog with energy, smarts, and of course, the looks.
Weighing in at 14 to 18 pounds, this compact breed is all sorts of adorable. If those big eyes and adorable nose doesn’t make you fall in love with the Pug, I don’t know what will. Growing to only around 10 to 14 inches in height, the Pug is so small that you can even train it to hang out with you on your bed. Just don’t forget to give it its daily exercise if you don’t want it getting bored or depressed.
This gentleman on the list will make any condo look good. But make sure to keep an eye on him because he can be a bit of trouble if left alone for long periods of time. This breed can keep its barking to itself so you don’t need to worry about the neighbours complaining.
This breed may sound all fancy, but it can be very territorial and protective over its adopted family. This dog will only bark when there’s someone at the door so if you’re looking for a small energetic guard dog for your condo, this one might be your best bet.
