Toy Dog Breeds

Toy dog breeds are lots of fun.

Here you will find the most common toy dog breeds with a brief description of each one.

These are tiny little dogs that weigh less than 15 pounds.

They eat very little so they are easy on your wallet when it comes to feeding expenses. It's always a good idea to have a budget for unexpected expenses in case of an accident or illness as well as scheduled vet visits for regular vaccines.

Although most dogs from this group love children, it is not recommended to get one while the kids are under 10 years old. Little hands with too much love tend to squeeze the dog so tight which could cause a lot of harm to the dog.

Little dogs have a reputation of yapping all the time. That is because some people let them get away with it.

You can teach your dog not to bark at everything and anything just like you would a larger dog.

Toy dogs are lots of fun but they must be watched as they sometimes think they are big dogs and can get in trouble that way.

Most of them are very affectionate and love to be held and cuddled.

It is not recommended to use a leash and collar for walks. It's better to attach a leash to a body harness, not a collar. The collar is only to hold dog tags, not drag the dog around.

These are small, fragile dogs. Tugging and pulling on the collar around your dog’s neck can contribute to a collapsed trachea and other neck damage. Use a body harness.

This list is by no means complete. There are many more breeds from this group which we have not included yet.
