Top 5 Dogs Breeds That Can Survive Independently

1) Dachshund


Dogs are man’s best friend, no matter what size of house or apartment you live in. However, some breeds are better suited to living independently than others, and many can even thrive on their own. The top five dogs that can survive independently are the following (in alphabetical order)

This breed doesn’t get enough credit for its multi-faceted talents. They’re a cuddly lap dog with a ton of personality, and they also excel at digging (which means you won’t have to get your hands dirty in doggy cleanup duty). It should come as no surprise that Dachshunds were bred for hunting badgers and other small game; don’t be surprised if you start finding some interesting goodies in your backyard once you add one to your pack.








2) Jack Russell Terrier

An energetic breed that can’t sit still for long, these dogs need to run, play, and do all of those things outside. If you don’t have a yard, look for a place where you can take your dog for frequent walks. Jack Russells are notorious for being very difficult to train and stubborn; if you don’t want him chewing up your belongings when you’re not home, it’s best to invest in training and lots of chew toys. In addition to his independent streak, he’s also known for being feisty and quick-tempered—so be sure to socialize him early on!



3) Corgi

Short, stubby legs don’t cut it when it comes to long-distance dog walking. But because of their stubby stature, corgis can actually get away with not getting as much exercise as larger breeds. The solution: a low-impact way to keep up with all your Corgi’s favorite jaunts: take a walk on a treadmill at home. It’ll give you and Fido some quality time together while you both stay in shape.


4) Maltese

Maltese dogs are smart, social, and easily trained. They can fit right into your lifestyle, whether you’re living alone or with roommates. The miniature dachshund is another highly sociable breed that also enjoys being part of a family unit. If space is at a premium, a small-sized dog like a Yorkshire terrier or miniature poodle may be more suitable. No matter what size dog you choose to live with as a singleton, make sure he gets out of his crate for walks and play time several times each day.



5) Yorkshire Terrier

The Yorkie—those big eyes and that wild coat just spell cute. And she’s pretty independent, so she won’t mind if you don’t come home until dinner time. She loves to follow you around, but she doesn’t need constant attention. This breed is great for senior citizens, who might not be able to handle a rambunctious puppy. If you have a cat or other small critter, get another dog or bring in another pet for company—Yorkies love companionship and will want to keep their pals company when you can’t provide it. And though they were bred as companion dogs, they enjoy short walks alone or with their owner nearby to supervise from afar.
