|Owning a dog in an urban environment presents many unique challenges. Often, non-sporting breeds are a good choice for people who live in a confined environment, as these dogs typically require less space to exercise. Proper training is a necessity as there is little room for improper doggie obedience in a place that can present so many hazards to an unsuspecting pooch.
Motor vehicles and impatient pedestrians can challenge the nerve of many a dog owner in a crowded, bustling place. Opportunities for play and exercise should also be well planned and considered. A playful pup may run out of patience if not afforded the opportunity to stretch his legs and rub noses with other dogs.
