Common Misconceptions and Myths About Small Dog Breeds – 10 Pictures

People are often misguided when it comes to small dog breeds. They are even reluctant of buying or adopting one, because of the prejudice about them. We all heard the same things over and over again. They are yappy. They are ankle biters. They are tempered and bad with children, and so on. Well, from all of us proud small dog owners, we say that those myths and stereotypes need to be busted once and for all.

''Sir Barks A Lot''

First common myth about small dog breeds is that they are all yappy. Yes, some of them are. For example, Chihuahuas and Maltese dogs have that high pitch bark, that can be very irritating from time to time. But let us not exaggerate and jump to conclusions. Not all small dog breeds are barkers. Italian Greyhounds and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are pretty quiet. We can also mention in this quiet group of dogs a Chinese Cresteds, Boston Terriers, Shiba Inus and Japanese Chins. Let us not forget, that the pet owners are sometimes to blame, when their dog is barking. Unintentionally, they encourage their barking behavior. Instead of yelling at your dog, teach him a quiet command, and you will be pleasantly surprised.
