Are you planning to adopt a pet and live in the apartment? Or for some reason are you planning to move to a smaller apartment or place? Remember that your dog is part of the family and before making the change you will need to include it within all your life plans.
Now we're going with the tips for dogs living inside an apartment.
Interestingly (although in the end it turns out more obvious than curious) many dogs living in apartment are happier than dogs living in houses with garden. This is because owners in a certain way are “forced” to pay more attention to them and establish clearer routines for them. Another factor that makes them happier is that they live inside the house with their humans and can be aware of everything that happens.
Fit the space: Arrange furniture and objects in the home so that your dog has enough space to walk and move freely. Draw tours around the house and take care that the ornaments are out of reach of your tail (this will prevent you from breaking things that can hurt you). In this way the pots, coffee tables or corner rooms of the room, lamps and other objects will be out of their way.
Give her your place: All dogs need a place of their own at home, where they know that nobody will move their things there and that there they can safely relax and rest.
Secure windows, doors and balconies: Any movement on the street is a spotlight for a dog. Some things can motivate you so much that you want to go, motivation will prevent you from thinking that you are on a high floor and you may want to go out; a fall from a second floor can be deadly. When you are at home, take the opportunity to show him the windows and balconies allowing him to look out (while holding it) and tell him watch out! With repetition you will learn that they are high places and you need to be careful.
Bathroom and Kitchen: As for access to the kitchen or bathroom it is advisable to keep it closed when you can't supervise it, unless you've taken the time to teach them that you should not drink or eat anything from those areas. If it is a puppy, you should be careful to establish a place where he can do his needs, which has clean water available so that he does not look for it in these places.
Bath Routine: If your dog already knows how to evacuate about newspaper, then you won't have a major problem. But if your goal is to teach him to only go to the bathroom when you take it outside, then you need to generate the routine. A dog living in the apartment needs to go out a greater number of times a day, as it needs to go to the toilet (dogs that have courtyards or gardens can decide when to go to the toilet without relying on their owners).
Routine of walks: Remember that all dogs need to walk EVERY day without exception (and that's even if they live in a house with a garden). To keep your dog happy and balanced, without doing mischief inside the apartment, we recommend you walk it in the morning at least 45 to 60 minutes and in the afternoon night another 45 to 60 minutes (make sure that in the middle of the day he can go out for at least pee). The walk is the solution to all ills.
In-home games: Not having a yard is not a limitation to play with our pet inside the house.
Food: It is vital that I don't apply the “I leave the croquette dish available all day and I'm going to work”... Why? Giving free access to food can lead to problems with apathy to eat, malnutrition or, on the contrary, overweight.
Consider the neighbors: Many of us used to play inside the house with our dogs. This type of activity involves a lot of movement, and on ceramic or wood floors your dog's nails will make noise that will amplify for those who live in the apartment below. Consider putting mats and keeping your pet quiet overnight and weekend mornings. Always remember to wear your collar and strap to get out of the front door of the building, so you will avoid accidents or situations that may be misinterpreted. Don't let him run down the building stairs, let alone bark at the doors of neighboring dogs. Teach him to stay calm inside the building. To avoid confrontations with neighbors it is better to carry a considerate and supportive coexistence among all those who live in the building.
