Pocket-sized pups are more than just an accessory
Small dog breeds are attractive to people for many reasons. These miniature pooches offer the same loyalty and friendship as a large dog, but they virtually stay puppy-sized forever. Toy dog breeds are the canines of choice for those who love little dogs. From the toy poodle to the pug, toy dogs come in all shapes and sizes, though they share a few qualities – they are all under 20 pounds, and they will all love their owners unconditionally.
Some toy dogs, like the Brussels Griffon, were bred for specific purposes, such as hunting small vermin. Others, like the the Pekingese, were bred for the function they still serve today – lap dog. From China to Europe, many toy breeds have warmed the laps of royalty for hundreds of years. Now, your breed says nothing about your class, but toy breeds are particularly well-suited to people who live in small spaces. Toy breeds are considered the best for novice owners. However, if you have children, a larger breed may be better. Toy dogs can be slightly fragile because of their size and may not do so well around rambunctious children.
Having one of these tiny bundles of joy is fun because you can bring them almost anywhere. Thanks to pet supplies like the Sport Pet Stroller, you can run all of your errands without worrying about your pooch getting tired of walking, since small breeds to not need as much exercise and do not have as much stamina as larger dogs. Bags like the 3-in-1 Soft-Sided Pet Carrier are handy for carrying your pooch, and the Dog Car Seat and Travel Carrier can even be strapped into your car for safety while driving.
Toy breeds do have particular diet needs. Pet food like Artemis Fresh Mix Small Breed Adult Dry Dog Food is specially formulated for the nutritional needs of small breed dogs. These tiny canines are also good for new pet owners because they eat less food, meaning they will be less expensive overall.
These pooches are called toy breeds for a reason. Much like your favorite stuffed animal as a child, they are perfect for cuddling. Help them climb onto the couch or bed with you by setting up Plush Foam Dog Steps, but make sure to give them their own space on the floor, too.
