If you’re wanting a small dog that will thrive in your spacious apartment home, a pug will be the perfect fit for you. These pups are known for their low maintenance needs, and they will love both large and small homes. They also don’t shed much and require minimal grooming, so you won’t have to worry about their hair getting everywhere. Their wrinkled faces make them lovable, and they get along with other pets and children. They don’t require much exercise but are the perfect cuddle buddy after a long day.


A beagle will be your best friend for those willing to work with their dog and train them. These dogs are energetic and are often one of the best-behaved breeds with the proper training. They do love to howl, but the concrete construction of your home ensures that your neighbors won’t be bothered. These pups will love playing and exploring the dog park and will make the perfect companion. A beagle is a mid-size dog that is ideal for any home.

Bernese Mountain Dog

Bernese mountain dogs may be large, but their lovable personalities and laidback demeanor make them ideal for apartment living. Like beagles, these pups also require some training, but as they get older, they will make the best addition to your home. Since these dogs are quite shaggy, they require regular grooming, and their hair may come off on your clothing and furniture. If they can get outdoors and exercise, they will be happy in any sized space. Our ideal location in Downtown Tampa, FL will offer exciting spaces to explore with your pup, so there’s no need to worry. Bernese mountain dogs are sure to thrive in any situation.
