Most dog owners have an opinion on whether small dogs or big dogs are best. When deciding what kind of dog you want, you should consider which dog breeds are the yappiest, cuddliest, or meanest. Some of that decision will be speculation. Some is science. And some is temperament.
Napoleon Complex: Small dogs without training and appropriate boundaries try to dominate and exhibit bad behavior, including aggression, nipping, and jumping.
Handle with care: Toy breeds are more prone to injury and illness due to their size and inbreeding. They often have breathing, stomach, skin and bone, and joint issues.
Choose the right dog for apartment living: Consider pet size, exercise requirements, animal noise and mess, money to spend on care, and landlord permission.
Couch potato dogs: Make an honest assessment of your lifestyle to help you choose the right dog. If you’re a couch potato, get a couch potato dog, not a high energy dog.
