Could it be that there is a Tyranny of Small Dogs? Tyranny not because the dogs themselves are doing anything wrong. Quite the opposite; small dogs seem to have a tremendous capacity to lull us humans into thinking that we don’t have to work with them like we would a larger breed. Somehow we expect them to be “great little dogs” just because they are small and cute and we get to cuddle them. And that could be working against them if we are not giving them the training and structure they need.
