New York - Popular and Best Breeds for City Living

The top three dog breeds in New York are Golden Retrievers, Labradors, and German Shepherds – the same as many US states. Also popular are French Bulldogs, Shih Tzus, Chihuahuas, and on the other side of the size spectrum, Shiba Inus.

Not sure which breed is right for you? Here are some of the pros and cons of popular breeds for city dwellers who live in small apartments.

Shih Tzus in New York: This is a small breed that can adapt well to living in a small apartment. A Shih Tzu doesn’t mind where she lives as long as she has you around.

Chihuahuas in New York: Given that Chihuahuas are big barkers, you would think they are not the ideal choice for apartment dwellers. However, Chihuahuas can be trained to be quiet. The advantage is that these dogs only need a few square feet to play fetch.

French Bulldogs in New York: Frenchies are a great choice for people living in busy cities since they don’t require a lot of exercise and like to stay close to their owners.

Shiba Inus in New York: The thought of such a large dog in a tiny NYC apartment can be intimidating, but Shiba Inus are fastidiously clean, independent, and can tolerate being alone for reasonable amounts of time, which makes them adaptable to busy city lifestyles.

If you are thinking of getting a puppy in New York, being able to afford your dog is one of the major things you’ll have to take into consideration. Here are the answers to some frequently asked questions about dog costs in NYC as well as pet restrictions.

How much does it cost to buy a puppy in NYC?

The cost of a puppy in NYC can vary greatly depending on the breed, the breeder, the puppy’s bloodline, etc. On average, a dog costs $2,000 in New York.

How much does a vet visit cost in NYC?

Your dog’s annual checkup with the vet will set you back by around $100. However, your yearly vet bills can run into several hundred dollars because most pets end up needing more than one vet visit every year, including occasional emergency visits.

Do NYC apartments allow dogs?

As many as 7 out of 10 buildings in NYC have a no pet policy. However, the NYC Pet Law protects dog owners who have rented an apartment in a building that prohibits dogs.

How do you get around pet restrictions in New York?

It is generally easier to rent an apartment from private owners rather than a company if you live with a dog. If may help to offer a pet deposit. If your pet is registered as an emotional support dog, it is typically easier to get landlords to allow them.
