The Benefits of Owning a Small Dog

Dogs are great! If you are thinking of getting a dog, be sure not to rule out getting a small breed. Small dogs are so mobile, that you can take them practically everywhere with you. If you are on a long walk and your little dog tires out, you can simply pick him up and carry him along!

There are also special small dog carriers available that are designed for the smallest breeds. These carriers come in the form of backpacks, shoulder bags and sling-type harnesses that you just slide you little four-legged friend into and take him along with you.

If you live in a small apartment, a loft or even a small house, owning a small dog is a great idea. Small dogs do not need as much space as a big dog and many landlords will allow tenants to own small breed dogs.

Another great advantage of owning a small dog is that they do not require nearly as much activity as a large dog. Of course they need walks and play time, but taking a small dog out around the block a few times per day is usually sufficient. If you own a large breed on the other hand, that dog will need to cover a lot more ground each day to ensure that he gets a sufficient amount of exercise.

So if you are going to get a dog, please do consider the small breeds. They are easy to carry, take up less space and are less expensive to keep as they do not eat nearly as much food as the large breeds.
