This stereotype is particularly exasperating.

Though it's true that some breeds of dog tend to vocalize more than others, not all of them are small breeds.

Big and small dogs both bark in order to communicate or get a response.

It may take some time but you can guide your dog to a quieter lifestyle.


Dogs do have fur coats, but it is of no help during a bitter cold.

They are just as sensitive as people to a drop in the temperature.

If the outside temperature falls below 50 ºF, small to medium-sized dogs begin to feel a cold nip.

Larger dogs can, however, tolerate temperatures up to 40 ºF.
