While some people are dog lovers, some prefer small dogs. These people may live in a small home or an apartment, the size of which requires them to have a small pet. However, even though small dogs may not require a large space to live, they may be energetic and mischievous if they are not given the proper amount of exercise and activity on a regular basis. Small dogs may need to take their exercise while indoors. This may be due to an aversion to the extreme heat or cold. You may not have a large backyard for the pup to play in. Small dogs generally need a minimum of less than a half hour of daily activity, and the bonding experience that you'll have is invaluable.
Your small dog has a need to burn off energy just as any larger dog does! Keep your pup on their toes by introducing interesting games that stimulate both your pup's mind and body. Remember, a dog with built-up energy is often a recipe for disaster! Work off that energy with just a few moments of play every day.
