Oh, the Joy of Being Owned by a Small Dog

Bigger might be better to some but we think the best comes in small packages especially when it comes to that tiny canine.  And, since you are here, we think you might agree.

Their small size makes them perfect for:

  • Apartment and city dwellers as well as those that live in the country
  • The young and old and everyone in between
  • For singles, couples,  and those with families
  • Basically just about anyone!

There is much to love about these little fur babies-- their playfulness, loyalty, love, and devotion to their owners and families, not to mention their intelligence, curiosity and spunk.

But any dog, big or small deserves not only your love and understanding, but also some work on your part.  That is the purpose of Small Dog Place. 

You have questions?  We have answers.

You have concerns about your dog?  We are here to problem solve with you.
