Uncle Matty Q+A
Question:
I have told my friend many times, since my dog is so small, it doesn't need any training. What do you think?


Answer:
Tell your friend you are going to have your dog trained. The size of your dog has nothing to do with the size of his problems. Your dog can have the same problems larger dogs may have.

Many times small dogs run around and bark excessively because so many small-dog owners baby their pets. I'm sure you have seen small dogs that spend more time in their owners' arms than they do on their own four legs.

I suggest you start your dog on a training program. Do it for you and your dog, not because your friend is doing it. It's the best thing for your pet.
