5 Dog Breeds That Are Great For Urban Environments


Whether you're getting your dog from a classified that reads "puppies for sale," a licensed breeder, or an adoption agency, it pays to be well informed about the breed you're bringing home. There are some dog breeds that simply do not do well in the city. As a city dweller, inform yourself of these breeds that are perfect for tight, urban environments.

Boston Terriers

These sturdy, two-toned terriers do well in virtually any environment and tend to be quite independent, which means that they tend to make their own fun, given the right settings, and do not need an abundance of exercise. They are quite relaxed, and though independent, tend to be quite loyal to their owners. They are of small to medium stature, so they won't take up a lot of space in your apartment.

Norfolk Terriers

Norfolk Terriers' coats need to be groomed quite often, but they make this small breed quite resilient to the elements and some of the air pollution you might encounter living in a metropolitan area. They also are very social and friendly beasts, meaning that, while they may be curious about people and other dogs they encounter on the street, they will rarely be aggressive.


Dachshunds' small, elongated bodies make them a perfect companion in cities that require you to live in small, elongated apartments. They are deeply loyal to their owners, and while they require an ample amount of exercise in proportion to their tiny bodies, a simple walk around a couple of blocks or some quality playtime in a dog park will suffice.

Miniature Pinscher

The miniature Pinscher belongs to the Pinscher family of dog breeds, and generally only grows to 10 to 12 1/2 inches in height. These pooches are extremely intelligent and loyal to the end to their owners. If you're looking for a good guard dog to patrol your apartment, you can do no better than one of these feisty fellows.

Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

These toy spaniels are content lounging with their owner on the sofa or bed, or going out for long walks or runs. They are an incredibly versatile dog breed that requires little in the way of maintenance and they tend to easily adapt to most environments.
