RIA Novosti reports from Moscow on August 7. Some dog breeds, such as the Laika, Alaskan Malamute, Caucasian Shepherd Dog, Mastiff, and Akita, might be unpleasant living in an apartment, not only because of their size but also because they are overly energetic or difficult to manage. According to Vladimir Golubev, President of the Russian Cynological Federation (RKF), Inu.

“Some dogs are not fit for apartment living owing to physiological and breed traits. They are either lively or crowded, or they are tough to retain. We’re talking about sled dogs or enormous, gigantic beasts. Even if you truly want to have such a dog in a studio apartment, you need to think about it carefully. The dog breeder must recognize that certain dogs are simply not built to lie on the sofa all day; otherwise, the animal will suffer. This will not make either the owner or the dog happy “Golubev stated.

He clarified that his advice on the breeds of dogs that are better not to keep in an apartment is rather arbitrary: a lot depends on the owner, lifestyle and pet care. Some owners in private houses keep their dogs in an open-air cage on the street, and the animals do not even go out into the yard for walks, and among the tenants of the apartments, there are those who give their pets a sufficient portion of physical activity every day.

One of the breeds is unsuitable for living in an apartment, the cynologist called Laika. These are ideal hunters, outwardly resembling a wolf, they have strongly developed pedigree instincts, which makes them fearless and hardy animals with an excellent sense of smell and endurance, Golubev said. Likes are quite stubborn and need a lot of physical activity with a specific goal – to search for prey. If the owner is not ready for daily long walks, it is better not to have such a pet in the apartment, the president of the RKF noted.

According to him, a huge and rambunctious dog, the Alaskan Malamute, would be a perfect tenant of private property with a vast territory. These canines are utilized as sled dogs in the north, and they require a huge yard for vigorous sports and running. Work is in their DNA, therefore only the owner’s attention and the ongoing chance to actively spend time with the dog would make such a dog happy, according to Golubev.

Speaking of Siberian Huskies, he stated that these dogs have long earned the hearts of many people, and it comes as no surprise that they are now being started in flats. However, it is vital to note that they may only live in an apartment if certain requirements are met: pets require regular active, and extensive walks, at least three times each day. “If the dog is left alone at home and does not use his energy, he might wreck your flat. Furthermore, these are canines with exceptional working abilities. If you do not pay attention to active training, the dog may develop a slew of negative behaviors in addition to pogroms in the home “, the director of photography cautioned.

Central Asian and Caucasian Shepherd Dogs, he claims, may also cause a lot of trouble for their owners if not properly trained. In such a little environment, such a massive dog would be uncomfortable. In a small kitchen, there may not be enough space to turn around for everyone and the dog.

The Tibetan mastiff, according to Golubev, is not the ideal choice for an apartment. These are great watchmen, sleeping much of the day and remaining alert until dusk. Because of its breed tendencies, the dog may howl loudly, especially at night, if it senses a strange noise, which may annoy the neighbors.

Furthermore, even in a medium-sized flat, such enormous canines would be crammed.

The Kennel Federation’s President described Akita Inu as independent and temperamental, requiring long walks to release their energy. Active physical exercise should be included in daily training. These dogs dislike confined areas, and because of the warm and dry air, they may shed constantly in a heated apartment.

Those who plan to have a St. Bernard in their residence should provide a big and pleasant environment for the pet, according to the expert. St. Bernards can be uncomfortably large in an apartment, but they are otherwise incredibly friendly and gregarious creatures recognized as rescues. They adore individuals and require their companionship.

“Before getting a large and energetic pet in an apartment, consider carefully about the circumstances for maintaining the animal, be prepared to walk the dog frequently, and don’t forget about physical exercise. If you realize that you will not be able to devote enough time to walking and caring for a dog, it is best to give it up in favor of a tiny companion who is well-suited to apartment living “Golubev summarized.
