Petland Speaks: The Benefits of Small Dog Breeds

March 15, 2019

Have you been questioning whether or not you should invest in small dog breeds or large dog breeds?

Well, they are both extremely great animals, but for some, a smaller dog breed may be a better option. Here at Petland, we advise that you consider these 3 things before thinking about buying your future dog. 1. Does your dog fit into your lifestyle? 2. Are there parks within walking or close driving distance of your home? 3. Is your home safe enough for a small animal? After considering these questions you should take some time to read about how small dog breeds may be the best fit for your home.

1. Dog food can be extremely expensive.

However, with a smaller dog, you will not have to buy as much food for them as you would for a larger dog. This may be a key factor to consider when thinking about whether or not to buy small dog breeds.

2. They are super easy to cuddle with.

If you are looking to buy a dog for the mere fact that they are the most comforting animals on the planet then you may want to have a small dog that is easier to cuddle. Large breeds might think they are the ultimate lap dog, but it can be hard to oblige a 50lb Golden Retriever!

3. They are the perfect size to be your traveling companion.

Ever heard of the term “road-dog”? Well, this is exactly what small dog breeds will be for you because they are easy to transport. This can be helpful for those who travel often or usually have a lot of errands to run throughout the day. If you are seriously contemplating whether or not you want to buy a small or big dog, first make sure that you are ready for all of the responsibilities that come with owning a dog. Secondly, consider the list above to make sure that a small dog is appropriate for your lifestyle. If you have any more questions you can always come in and talk to us at our Petland location. We are more than happy to provide advice to you!
