Dog Training Tips : How to Care for Small Dog Breeds

Hi this is Zephyr Clarke- Dolberg with Miami
Dog Training in Miami, Florida. In this clip we are going to talk about how to care for
small dog breeds and Brittany is a perfect example. She is a Chihuahua Lasa Apso mix
and Chihuahuas are typically known for being kind of nervous dogs but in Brittany’s case
she is not a very nervous dog at all and one of the biggest mistakes that people tend to
make with small dogs is that they don’t let them walk enough. They tend to carry them
everywhere so the dog, a lot of people don’t know this but when you are carrying the dog
and the dog is on top of you if it is a dominant dog to begin with the dog is going to assume
that it is on top of you because it is your leader and allowing them to walk gets rid
of some of that nervous energy and exercise allows them to kind of go with the natural
flow of things. You never want to nurture the nervous or shy or teeth bearing behaviors
with a small dog. You want to give them a little pinch on the scruff of their neck and
praise when they are really good. This is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg with Miami Dog Training.

    i know right! i was just thinking how that little dog looks like a blonde version of my dog when he bitch-pinched her for no reason! how can i trust a guy who just punished his dog for sitting there quietly (even if it's just an "example" the dog doesn't know that.) do that enough and you'll def have a nervous dog!
