Little dogs have special needs and are more prone to fear, stress and reactivity. Take a deep dive into all things small this week with Drayton Michaels, CTC, as he discusses the needs of little dogs. From the proper ways to approach and pick up a small dog to how to counter condition using a dog carrier like a doggie Bjorn, we talk about setting up environments that promote positive associations for our tiny four legged friends. Drayton talks about how to set up little dogs for success, how to find appropriate dog play mates, how to deal with multiple dogs of different sizes in the same house, and how to work with kids and small dogs. He also brings up piddle pads and their use with small dogs, as well as work-to-eat toys.
