If you have decided that it’s time to welcome a dog to your family, you may be wondering what size pet is right for you. Although many people who dwell in the suburbs have large or medium-sized dogs, for urban citizens of New York City, small dogs make the perfect companions. Here are just a few of the reasons why:
Small Dogs Need Less Space In New York City boroughs, space is expensive. Since the average family here has much less square footage than those who live elsewhere, it simply is not practical to keep a larger dog that needs a large open field for exercise.
Small Dogs Are Easier to Groom If you choose a breed of dog that requires brushing, grooming, or frequent bathing, you can easily accomplish these tasks yourself if the dog is small. It’s easy to place a 10-pound dog in the bathtub and bathe him with a hand shower; you may not be able to wrangle an 80-pound pet unless you’re a body builder!
Small Dogs Are Easy to Exercise The bigger a dog is, the more walking he will require to get sufficient daily exercise. Larger dogs can go two miles or more without getting tired, but smaller dogs can easily stretch their legs enough on a walk that is less than a mile long.
Small Dogs Require Less Food Whether you plan to buy large bags of dried food in bulk for your dog, or feed him cans of wet food, your expenses will be significantly less if you choose a smaller breed. Naturally, a 10-pound dog will require less food than a 50-pound dog.
At Puppy City, we have a large selection of small breed puppies, including Maltese, Yorkies, and Shih Tzus. Visit us in Brooklyn to meet some of these fantastic puppies for sale today, or call (347) 263-8412 to find out which pets are ready to go home with your family.

One of the first questions that most prospective dog owners ask before taking a puppy home is: “How much exercise will he need?” The answer depends on many factors, including the breed of the dog and his individual temperament. Most puppies require a substantial amount of daily exercise to avoid boredom and destructive behaviors, but as adults, dogs often calm down. Here are some tips to help ensure that your puppy gets the exercise he needs to grow up healthy:
Set a Schedule and Stick to It When you first bring your puppy home, consistency is key to ensuring that he adjusts well to his new environment. Keeping a regular exercise schedule will help ensure that your puppy does not run around the house chewing and scratching while you are away. If you tire him out with morning and evening walks each day, he’s less likely to act out when left alone.
Protect Your Puppy’s Paw Pads Dogs descend from wild animals. This means, like humans, their feet did not evolve to walk unprotected on hard sidewalks made of concrete. Your puppy needs to build up calluses in order to avoid foot problems later in life, so be sure to take him to a park so he can run freely on the soft grass and dirt.
Safeguard Your Puppy’s Health You should not push your puppy’s limits, because doing so may endanger his health. Establish a short walk route, and if your puppy is still full of energy at the end of the circuit, start again. Turn back at the first signs of exhaustion, and carry him home when necessary. On hot summer days, carry water with you, so you can give him a drink when he starts to pant.

One of the best ways to instill confidence in your puppy is to ensure that he is at least seven weeks old when you adopt him. The earliest weeks of his life represent an essential bonding time with his mother and siblings. To further the healthy development of his brain, you should constantly stimulate him through play and interaction with fellow pets.
Another way to make sure that your puppy grows up to be a strong dog is to buy him from a reliable breeder. As you will learn in this video, not all pet stores are the same, and it’s important for you to look for a breeder that treats puppies with care and respect.
Here at Puppy City, the wellbeing of our Yorkie puppy and Maltese puppies for sale is the number one priority. To learn more about our commitment to selling happy, healthy puppies, call us in New York City at (347) 263-8412.
