Why are so many small dogs yappy or snappy?
When taking a look at the small breeds, we should maybe first take a look at the type of personality that generally seeks these breeds. If, during his socialization period, a small dog is constantly carried in public and rarely walked with four paws on the ground, he will not assimilate sufficiently to become a confident dog. His snappiness and barking will become a fear reaction later on. He will bark at everything he sees to get it away from him.
