Default Does ANYONE have a well trained small dog?!? (moved to stories)

I have been going for walks at our local park, and it seems like every small dog that I come by with mishka tries to bite her.

The owners seem to find it so funny and I'm really fed up with it.

Yesterday a woman was walking her mini schnauzers and stopped to meet my dog. One of them growled and snapped at mishka and she started saying "it's okay" talking to her dog. Luckily I pulled my girl back as soon as I heard the growl.... I'm just so tired of untrained small dogs. Does anyone have a good, well trained one? If so... Please post a video...

Ha! I wish I even knew someone with a small dog that had any kind of manners or training. Maybe I'm stereotyping but every small dog owner I know should own cats....

We had a fantastic min-pin growing up, trained, great with kids and a fairly high threshold. Sadly, that was a good twenty years ago, I have yet to see her equal. But then, I'm not particularly attracted to small dogs...

Yeah, I hate going out with my dogs and having little dogs act like idiots.

I've had several Italian Greyhounds over the years, and I have a 14 year old one now, and they NEVER acted like that towards other dogs. They all went to training classes... I don't have a video of anyone doing obedience, but I have one of them being cute, LOL. (and please ignore the click clack of the toenails, they were long overdue!)

Haha, what do you consider small? My Mini Aussies are 25-30lbs and they are all well behaved I've also seen quite a few good small dogs... however, the majority are simply owned by people who fall a bit short when it comes to socializing and training :/ Actually, I think they act just like their little dogs... completely fearless... because when their little dog is charging a big dog they don't seem to consider the fact that a single well placed bite could kill their dog. So neither the little dog or the owner have any survival sense...

Haha yay a thread for my little guy

I have a 3 year old 8lb Chinese crested who is 100% off leash trained - no matter what. He is perfect with any dog, even "aggressive" ones (I have used him in obedience classes to help socialize him) he does lure coursing, and we have taken dozens of OB classes including rally.

I have a 15 lb pug and as well as doing years of obedience training she also competed in agility for a short time. I would say she is well trained. As long as a Rottweiler doesn't walk next to her is just fine. For some reason she hates rotties.

My parents have a pug that is very well behaved, though has not had any formal obedience training. Knows the basics on and off-leash and some fun tricks including "dance", "speak" and they've trained her to jump over a stick too lol.

Well, I think it would help determine what your asking; i. e. What is a well trained small dog ?

I can answer about my Jack but is that the answer your looking for ? Is he small enough. No, he's not perfect in any way shape of form. But he is very trained in certain things. He loves to hunt for Gophers, loves digging at the campsite, (go to ground). He will jump on a 4' wall in less the two seconds when asked, if he wish's to do so. He will sit at every crosswalk on command and wait for the okay signal when the street is clear. He will jump up on the Park drinking fountain on command and stop like a cat to get a drink, although I don't allow that too often because it is not a safe practice, but he enjoys it. He will roll over and roll back upon command for a treat. He barks a lot. Very fast to see me grab my keys, a few doggie bags, put on my socks and shoes, he know's that outcome, but he's noisy. His manner's with other animals is fair at best. A very loving dog at 15" and 18.5 lbs. but he don't like chihuahua's.

Most small dogs are not controlled well because the owner thinks it's cute and sorry to say their wrong. Bad behavior needs constant - consistant attention. Nelson is wonderful with small children and they are told to hold their hand out and stand tall with their face out of reach. Children need to be instructed each and every time and the dog needs to hear the command gentle..

I would rate him a strong 5 on a 10 scale. He is not fearful of larger animals. Getting him to heel and keep his nose up is a constant. The leash goes forward and the head comes up, upon correction. Then after all the training is finished he get's playtime where were both in a more relaxed state. Nelson's Valor, JRT is Nov. 2006 (7). He loves his mommy, like chocolate cake.. No cake for the dog..

I hope at least I covered one of your questions..!!
