Miniature Dog Breeds

Miniature Dog Breeds

Miniature dogs can be a perfect addition to any family. They’re easy to cuddle, require a bit less maintenance and are much easier to transport. Miniature dogs are a fantastic alternative to larger breeds for many reasons. They’re perfect for cuddling, they’re easy to transport to the vet or to travel with, and they also shed less due to their size. Here are a couple of the most popular miniature dog breeds around.


Miniature Daschunds, also known by their nicknames: wiener dogs, sausage dogs or hot dogs, these miniature dogs weigh no more than 5 kg and are incredibly popular for their recognisable look. Their coat is short and smooth, but they’re very smart and love relaxing walks.


Maltese dogs are fairly easy to train and are well-behaved. They’re usually on the gentler side so they’re not great with young children who play rough. However, if you’re looking for a majestic dog that adapts well to living in small spaces such as apartments, a Maltese dog can be the perfect canine companion


Poodles are one of the most popular dog breeds around, but did you know they also come in a “toy” size that weighs no more than 4. 5 kg? They’re pint-sized between 20 to 25 cm in height and will fit perfectly on anyone’s lap.


Bold, curious and extremely excitable, Pomeranian dogs are usually anywhere between 1. 3 kg to 3 kg, making them very light and not very suitable for rough play sessions with kids. Their luxurious double coat comes in dozens of colours and requires a bit of maintenance, but they’re still one of the most popular miniature breeds around.
