Is it ok to move into an apartment if I have a dog?
Don’t dogs need a lot of space?
- Ask the owner00
- Lol yes01
- If the dog is allowed by the owner then sure, but I would suggest to take the dog for a walk multiple times a day as they'll be stuck inside.00
- Sometimes but often there is a weight limit. Fairly small dogs, below 30 pounds, are commonly accepted. Some breeds are not allowed at all, due it potential liability issues.00
- yes they do, and unless it's a tiny toy breed like a Chihuahua or Toy Poodle It's not fair to the puppy.01
- some apartments have restrictions. Depends on what the landlord/manager says.00

🤢1: That apartment MUST have a back door that opens straight into a securely fenced back yard where the dog can be taken to go toilet, and to exercise by playing with its pet human.
🤢2: The renter MUST have written permission from the landlord to keep THAT kind of dog in THAT apartment (most apartments do NOT have a ground-level back door into a fence yard. Most dogs become destructive when left in an apartment).
🤢3: The renter MUST be home 24/7 for the first few weeks (to help the new dog settle in & LIKE the human, and for the human to observe it 100% the whole time the dog is awake in order learn its "timings" and signal for "Wanna go toilet!" and take it out for "House-training"; and thereafter there MUST almost always be someone home with the pooch - to talk to it, to take it out to the yard.
🤢4: A dog owner MUST have transport to take him/her-self & the pooch to weekly training for about a year (so the human gets COACHED). But when I think "apartment" I DON'T think of a building with a car-shed for each tenant.

Depends on how you interpret "space".
The Toy group's breeds can huddle into very little area for naps. The giant breeds need rather a LARGE area just for sleeping - an area where the pooch won't be tripped over or trodden on. But you didn't think to TELL us what breed or breeds YOU are thinking of.
Dogs require rather a lot of INTERESTING experience - which means fetching & other games with their pet human, plus explorations in lots of different places - the play can be in a small yard, but the experiences require a variety of places such as fenced parks or areas that vehicles (including cars, motorbikes, pushbikes) cannot reach

The people in them KNOW about that breed. Plus you can include several actual photos in your posts.
to your browser, so that you can easily look up all sorts of information about dogs, especially GSDs. It is an "encyclopaedia" group (to which members can ask for new sources to be added), not a discussion group.

- That really depends on the dog. Lovable as they are, you don't want a coonhound in an apartment or your neighbors will hate you. Beagles can get pretty loud too. But if you are committed to giving a lot of exercise and know how to make the dog feel safe and not have separation anxiety, and since you don't own the apt. have him well potty trained - go ahead.00
- i guess it beats its doghouse
Hope that helps!02
Does the apartment even allow dogs? Does the apartment have breed and/or size restrictions?
Is it a puppy or an adult?
Is it trained and socialized so it won't become a nuisance or danger to the other renters and their dogs in the building?
Will you be willing to take the dog out on the leash to go toilet when you're home no matter the weather or how you're feeling?
Will you still be providing the dog with tiring mental stimulation and exercise before you leave for work and after you come home?
Depending on how long you work, will you be getting help from a professional and insured dog walker while you're away?
Is your dog quick to bark or a known nuisance barker? If so, will you be willing to put in the time to train it to be quiet?00
