What is considered a small dog?

A small dog breed is generally classified as one that weighs less than 24 lbs and stands at 15” or less.

These breeds come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but all offer a compact companion for those seeking an easily-manageable pup. Popular small breeds include the Chihuahua, Bichon Frise, Beagle, Corgi, Parson Russell Terrier, and Shih Tzu.

Many people are drawn to these breeds because they require less space than larger dogs and tend to have much lower exercise needs without sacrificing lots of cuddles!
