Must Haves for a Small Dog
Small Dog Bed
Just because your dog doesn't weigh very much doesn't mean they won't benefit from the support and comfort a small dog bed can offer. Even if your dog sleeps in bed with you, it's nice for them to have a space of their own.

Small Dog Harness
In lieu of collars, some owners of small dogs opt for harnesses to protect fragile necks from injuries related to leash walks or pulling. A good small dog harness should suit your pet's body shape, making it less likely to slip or rub.
