Living with a dog is wonderful, but it can become a headache if you don't choose the right one for you.
If you have decided to incorporate a dog into the family, congratulations!!!
At baluka we love pets and think it is a wise decision that will bring joy, activity, intense social life and even better health prospects to your life.
Having a dog has many benefits, but also disadvantages.
There are many benefits of living with a dog, although we assume that you have considered the cons: you will have to spend time and care for them, you will have to clean the house more often and you will find hair everywhere, if you have to leave home you will have to find someone to take care of them, you will have to spend money on food, vet, vaccinations...
Even so you have it clear. For you (and if you have already had a dog, all the more reason) the advantages of having a canine companion far outweigh the disadvantages.
Of course, you will have to evaluate which dog will best suit you depending on your lifestyle, home or age.
If you are sporty and love nature
There are some dog breeds that, like you, love to go running, hiking or long walks, and even swimming.
The following breeds are particularly suitable to accompany you on your outings:
The most popular, very intelligent, affectionate and extremely active, he adores his human family and does not tire easily.
Of hunting instinct and very, very versatile: calm at home, playful and energetic when out for exercise.
The most intelligent, super energetic, great runner and good caretaker of a herd, or failing that, of his family of humans.
Very active and energetic and a friend of children. They love to run and play, they appreciate your company and attention, so they will be a good companion on your outings and walks.
Very faithful and brave, with great energy and guardian instinct. It is one of the most popular dogs and very appreciated for its friendly character with children and its ease to be trained. It will undoubtedly keep up with the most sporty dogs.
Despite being considered a potentially dangerous dog (PPP), a well-behaved Pitbull is affectionate, protective, patient and ideal for living with children. He needs to channel his energy with lots of exercise, so he will be happy to go out with you several times a day. Don't forget that in Spain he needs a license, liability insurance and must wear a leash and muzzle to go out in the street.
Despite all this, any dog of any breed can be the best companion for exercise and physical activity if you respect its individual characteristics, adapt to its size and age and take care of its health and safety.
You may have been told many times that in a small apartment or apartment it is better not to have dogs. But if you choose a small or mini breed dog and you take care of it and feed it correctly, you don't have to have any problems.
These are some of the breeds that easily adapt to living in small spaces:
Cheerful, intelligent, affectionate, and extremely energetic and playful. In a small apartment or apartment, always with his owner or family, he will feel happy and confident.
There are different varieties, but due to its size, the Toy Poodle (which does not usually reach 5 kg in weight) or the Medium Poodle (which weighs around 13 kg) will adapt better to a small space.
Small, affectionate and calm. It adapts perfectly to small spaces as it barely exceeds 3 kg in weight. He spends a lot of time resting and loves to be with his family and receive cuddles and caresses, although he also enjoys his daily walk.
It is considered the smallest dog in the world. It measures between 15 and 20 cm and weighs between 2 and 3 kg. That is why it is perfect for small apartments or apartments.
