I need advice on adopting the right breed for my home, please help?

Hi- need advice on adopting the right breed for my home. Personally I am a fan of Labs. But we live in a flat on second floor (reasonably large and having an attached terrace). Have an aged person at home. all family members are dog lovers. But considering the size of Labs and their exuberant nature, i have a lot of resistance from family members. Alternatives are Beagle and Daschund, more for their size and coat. But I heard that Beagle is a difficult breed to manage and train. Daschund has a funny appearance (so unlike a retriever or work dog)!! what would the readers suggest?

Yes you are right that beagle is difficult to train also because of his doggy odour many doesnt prefer this breed. I live in apartment and I have Lab and I dont see any problem in having labrador in apartment but you should give him lot of play and walks. You know even daschund is difficult to train. You can also consider English Cocker Spaniel, it is small in size and perfectly fits in apartment.

most of the small breeds that suit an apartment have either long coat or they are difficult to train. Cocker spaniel is a good choice but requires daily grooming for the coat. I would suggest you go for a daschund / pug / min pinscher. If grooming is not a problem you can go for cocker spaniels

hi, spaniels are the best i can say if u have no problem grooming it alternative days atleast. u and your family would defenetly love them. its small in size, so grooming shouldn't be a problem.

Smaller dogs are much better for apartments and you can also train them to use your balcony if there is no one in the house to take it for a walk except for an aged family member. I personally dont think for a small breed trainability should be an issue. Small dogs are generally pampered and kept. It only with bigger dogs that proper training is a must due to their size.
I personally feel Beagle and the standard daschund are good choices. If you dont mind a bit of brushing etc then English Cocker Spaniel.
What you need to pay more attention is to getting the pup after it is atleast 2 months of age and from a reputable breeder and not pet shops etc. You will also need to decide that if ever all of you go out on a vacation etc where will you leave the pup/ dog etc.
All The Best !!
