  • Those Highly active and couch potatoes
  • Some are super playful, others highly intelligent

Dogs on Small Dog Place Have One Thing in Common:  

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.
