Dogs - Size does matter
You should take into consideration the size of your living space when you are choosing the size of the dog that you want to take home. A German Shepherd is a marvellous watch dog for your city apartment, but you must give that dog time in the park to run and be active every day. If you can't provide this dog the kind or amount of exercise that it needs because you're too busy, tired or is just idle enough, then, a watchdog is not what you really need but an alarm system instead. If you want a pet that could remain contented just being inside your apartment and being outdoors is not totally his inclination, then you might as well go for a toy dog like a poodle or Chihuahua.
If you have a secured balcony with solid, high railing, that may be enough outdoor time for a small dog, supplemented with at least one daily outside walk. Don't be fooled by the appearance or temperament of a particular dog.
A greyhound is a gentle dog that's also very quiet, since it can really be good to close living spaces. But that gentle greyhound must have daily physical exercise in enough area to run and play. For up to the speed of [forty five] mph, greyhounds can actually run that fast or even faster, so if you don't see to it that you can provide them enough time and space where they can freely run around, then don't be frightened if your living room will be turned into their own track. The result of such event is not likely to please you and not even your dog.
In whatever efforts you do to maintain a dog, size has always something to do with it. That cute, furry pup that you fell in love with at the pet store that barely nibbles pup chow, but now, it grew up to be some creature in the form of a one hundred and twenty pound St Bernard that could almost consume just anything and would even leave your wallets very soft and thin. If you want him to get enough sustenance then you better give him about 8-10 scoops of a daily high quality dog food, you'll be spending the price of a daily steak dinner - only you don't get to eat the steak. Pushing around a piece of furniture as easy as lifting a feather is just another thing that your dog can actually do. When you tend to leave your house in a rush and you left your dog with nothing to play with or somebody to entertain, the large dog may decide to destroy the living room just for fun.
Looking at the bright side, most pet keepers who own a toy dog usually supply their dogs with their own cute closet wherein they could display and keep their stuff such as little designer costumes, knit sweaters and clever toys. They also have chic beds, including those that are canopied or French provincial. Normally, holding on to all those doggy stuff is more complicated than keeping the dog himself since it could almost take up a lot of space and maintenance.
Some pet owners have multiple pets and if you are one of them owning multiple dogs, regardless of breed, you need to provide sleeping space for each dog. Don't anticipate them to crowd together. It is not only you who needs space but also your pets or dogs specifically. individual territory where it is possible to sleep, relax and hide their personal things such as bones or toys is also one thing that most dogs actually call for.
Outdoor dog houses having enough protection from any weather particularly the bad one should be provided to those dogs that are left to sleep or reside outside. Sharing a bedroom with a neighbor is not something that you would actually do, do you really think that your dog would do the opposite or that he would even care to share his own doghouse to some new dog especially to the one that he is not acquainted with? Bear in mind that if you want to add up another dog to your home, the space and care needs of each dog should be considered.
