20 Reasons To Consider A Smaller Breed


Adopting or buying a new dog is undoubtedly a very exciting period in one’s life. There are so many possibilities, so many choices and so many things to consider before bringing your new four-legged friend home.

One of the first things to decide is whether you want a big or a small dog. It will depend on your living arrangements, the backyard that you have (or do not have) and the amount of time that you can spend exercising your new buddy. Today, we will be looking at the advantages of owning a smaller breed of dog.

Here are 20 reasons why small dogs make excellent pets:


This one is quite logical – the smaller the dog, the less wear and tear they are going to cause to your home. The sheer physics of the setup make this the case. A smaller dog is lighter, their paws are smaller and their jaw is weaker. It is much more difficult for a small dog to cause any serious damage to your furniture, for example.

In addition to this, smaller dogs are generally much happier in limited spaces as they require less space themselves. This will make them less nervous and less likely to act up and thus ruin your living space.

That being said, there are smaller breeds that are very active and can be a scourge on your home if you are not careful and if they are not properly trained.
