But it really depends on the dogs and the environment. I'd say to go with a reputable breeder and have a trainer lined up. My brother in law started having problems with his shepherd and his dachshunds when the shep reached adolescence.
i'm going to do more research about them.
I'll ask my mother in law as well since shes had up to four big dog and two very small dogs all living in harmony.
