Here at Douglas Hall Kennels we have a variety of puppies looking for their forever homes both big and small, but many steer away from certain sizes due to myths or stereotypes that may have been previously heard or seen in the media.
To put these myths to rest we’ve put together 5 myths debunked surrounding small dogs. We hope you find these useful and they give you some real insight as to which sized dog is best suited to you and your family.
It’s also important to keep in mind that pet owners are sometimes to blame for a dog’s barking behaviour. This could be from dog owners encouraging their pups to bark by giving them lots of attention when they make noise. Instead of shouting at or picking up a barking dog, the owner should teach the dog to become quiet upon command.
And just because some small dogs fit perfectly in a purse doesn’t mean they want to be carried in one all the time — or at all. Many small breeds would prefer to walk on their own four legs.
We hope some of these debunked myths have cleared up some of your pre-conceptions and have helped you to identify whether a smaller dog would be the perfect fit for your family and your activity level.
