Are people not taking their little tykes out into public in fear of disease, trauma, injury or even death? If so, what are the risks of keeping the little dog at home and how does this affect you, the professional? Or, do owners really think little dogs arenít much of a nuisance and donít require training? Many small dogs rarely leave the house, especially during the cold weather, and if they do they have are labeled "pocket pooches."
