Four Small Dog Breeds that Stay Small Forever
Poodles are known for their eagerness to please their owners, fondness for people, and of course, their playful nature. Their agility and sharp sense of intelligence mean training is easy and fun.
However, they’ll need mental stimulation and exercise to ensure all that energy is used constructively, and this breed will need the training to curb the instinct to rule as the alpha dog.
This breed has long been famous for its happy-go-lucky, friendly personality. A combination of pack instincts, gentle disposition, and even temperament make it a go-to choice for families with children. Bonus: its short coat makes grooming easy.
3) Cavalier King Charles Spaniel
This toy spaniel is sweet, gentle, and attentive - perfect for a family looking for a canine companion for children, whom they get along with nicely. And, not to worry if you have another dog in the house - they are known for being amiable. This breed’s athleticism means they’ll also be up for chasing squirrels in the park, or that frisbee you’ve been meaning to take for a spin.
4) French Bulldog
A couch potato that requires little exercise (a daily walk will be enough to keep this breed in shape), French Bulldogs are known for being gentle, humorous companions to children, as well as mischievous. Its alertness means it’s also a great watchdog, while its short coat is low-maintenance and only requires an occasional brushing.
