Feed a high-quality small breed formula. Avoid free feeding to prevent obesity.
Lift small dogs properly by supporting chest and bottom. Don't risk injury by pulling on limbs.
Small dogs chill more easily. Provide sweaters, booties, and a warm place to sleep in cold weather.
Mind the Temperature
Opt for small dog dental chews and treats sized for little jaws. Monitor teeth closely.
Use positive reinforcement. Keep sessions short and sweet to match a small dog's attention span.
Short, frequent walks suit small dogs. Monitor for signs of fatigue. Games and play keep them active.
ID tags, fenced yards, stairs barriers and ramps help keep little pups safe.
