Are Bull Terriers Good Apartment Dogs?

by Jane Meggitt

Here's the face greeting you at your apartment door.

If you're an apartment dweller, whether a bull terrier makes a good match for you depends on several factors. If you're home a great deal and take your dog for regular exercise, a bull terrier can thrive in an apartment. If you're gone most of the day, that's a different story. They don't like being alone. Neighbors could complain about barking while you're away, while your landlord won't appreciate damage caused by your dog.

Living With Bull Terriers

Although just medium-sized, bull terriers are exceptionally strong dogs. They're quite energetic and need an outlet for that energy. Since you don't have a fenced-in yard, plan on taking your dog for at least an hour's worth of walks daily. Because some bull terriers are dog-aggressive, it's important to take your dog to obedience class, for training and socialization purposes.
