    Do you prefeer small dogs or big dogs and why?

    Do you prefeer a small or large dog, and why? I'd just like to know for curiositys sake .

    To answer myself, I like big dogs cause in the morning I am clumsy and I'm afraid Id step on and hurt a little dog! That and you don't have to worry about hurting them if you play with em! Don't get me wrong though, some little dogs I get along with great and others...ummm I'd rather not go there!

    bigger the better

    It's much easer to keep track of a big dog in any situation, they may be faster in some cases, but in a big house, you can hear them running around, they can't crawl under things like cats can, and if they get loose, maybe a car can see them in time and stop.

    Big dogs. I feel protected when I'm around big dogs. I like having a huge body that I can put my arm around. I like a deep bark. Big dogs have always suited my lifestyle. I get worried when I'm around little dogs; they always seem to walk around my feet; I'm afraid to step on one and hurt it.
    I've been BOO'd!

    I love them both, but I'd have to say I prefer larger dogs only because I have sensitive ears and the high pitched bark of some of the smaller dogs really hurts my ears.

    Thanks for the great signature Kay!

    Big dogs. I like feeling protected. They also seem less high maintenance then small dogs.


    Thank you Wolfie!

    definatly big dogs! i love big dogs! great danes are my favorite breed. i don't like small dogs because they have a really high yappy bark and they run around too much. i like the deep bark. and they are just so sturdy and i like to curl up on the floor with them. and they are better to play with.
    ps. no offense to small dog lovers

    I like medium - huge dogs. I would never say no to a smaller dog if they needed a home and I could provide it though.

    I like larger dogs because there's much more to cuddle.

    Either way, both are filled with the same amount of love.

    I agree.

    I didn't vote. I love both, I just like to cuddle up to a big dog, they are so snuggly. But then of course it also feels good to have 'a little Otis' sleeping by your legs.

    Big dogs, definitely.

    1. They're better for your back. You don't have to bend down to pet them!
    2. They're easier to walk - you can feel their head at your hip. If you want them to heel you can just hold their head there.
    3. Nobody's going to try to hurt you when you've got a big dog at your side.
    4. They're just about impossible to trip over.
    5. There's just more to love!


    Thanks for the siggy, Lexi_Lover!
