This breed is a bad choice for apartment life and will quickly grow frustrated with containment. It is happiest in a country home, or perhaps a farm, with land to explore and freedom to exhaust its bundles of energy. It is possible to keep a Griffon in a large house, providing there's a yard with ample space. The dog will appreciate room to maneuver, but space isn't necessarily a substitution for the freedom of a country life. The dog prefers a cool climate and isn't suited to Mediterranean temperatures, or stuffy humidity. It will not enjoy being kept in a kennel or being tied down for any length of time.
