Why get a Small Dog Breed

Small dogs are ideal and sweet to cuddle. You can watch a movie while they take a rest on your lap. That said, you can still have them in your small apartment because they take up little space. The fact it is small, means that you can travel with them anywhere you like. In fact, there are some hotels that allow guests to stay with small dog breeds.

All you need is to buy a small handbag for carrying them. What’s more, airlines, buses and trains will accept you to carry them. In other words, you’ll always have them around and never feel bored, no matter where you go.

Anyone that comes to your home or sees you with a small dog,  feels and experience an instant connection with you. People love cute little dogs because they are harmless and gives them a craving to own one. Suppose you had a medium or a big dog, you’ll constantly say, “ he doesn’t bite.” With a small dog breed, you don’t need to assure guests and passerby that they don’t bite.

Small dog breed needs mild daily exercises. A one hour or 30 minutes brisk walk is enough for them at the end of the day. With large dogs, you have to make sure that they are on  a leash and you’re strong enough to control them in case they become aggressive.

Grooming is something that you’ll enjoy with these little pets. Most importantly, you’ll have an easy time getting them to the bathtub and washing them. What’s more, you’ll  have an easy time when it comes to trimming their nails, brushing their precious coat and drying them. And you’re going to enjoy this too, because it feels like having  a baby.
