Welcome to Small Dog Place:

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.

Oh, the Joy of Being Owned by Small Dogs

There is so much to love and appreciate about small breed dogs.

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
  • Hot Climates, Chilly and cold Places
  • Basically just about anyone - anywhere
  • Those Highly active and couch potatoes
  • Some are super playful, others highly intelligent
  • All are loving and loyal

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 this site.

You have questions about which breed is best for you?  We have answers.

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

They are All Small

Just 25 pounds and under


But beyond that, there are so many ways small dogs differ...

  • Some are perfect for the most active and athletic among us.
  • Then, there are those that do an admirable job of keeping our couches warm.
  • Some are vocal and others rarely bark.
  • There are some so intelligent, that training is a breeze.
  • Some are feisty and playful and others docile and devoted.
  • Some that require hours of pampering and those who’s grooming needs fit neatly into anyone’s schedule.
  • All that in a small package makes it easy to see how they can steal our hearts with that first puppy kiss!
  • Some give your vacuum cleaner a work out and others that never shed.
