    Small dogs kill rabbits and rats. They’re based and useful. You want a useless dog? Get a shitbull. Wont guard consistently. Attacks dogs and kids instead of pests. Genuinely dumb, not stubborn, so it cant do any work. Worst dogs ever.

        They have the instinct anyway, they WANT to do it, it's about honing their scenting/killing skills.
        Unfortunately it isn't always that easy. Unless you're planning on your terrier joining your local ratting pack, there isn't really any point in training them specifically to rat. If you just want them to kill the rats around your property, they will do it on instinct and praise alone just fine.

        you get a hunting pure bred, like a jack russell, parson russell, or dachshund, your forefathers already bred the instinct to murder small animals in them, so all you have to do is to train them to understand commands and some level of self control

    Had dogs all my life. Nothing smaller than a chow. Got my first squeaker dog, a toy pomapoo, ~7yrs ago. Damn thing is five and a half pounds. Half a housecat.

    Best.
    Dog.
    Ever.

    If she was big enough to do anything useful, she'd be amazing, lol. But yeah. Give those little dogs a try! Amazing little creatures. Kinda worthless. It won't protect you from shit, and you can't take it hunting, but as a pet/companion animal you're really hard pressed to find something better. Kinda what I want from a rat, you know?

    Rats are cool too, but just have such short lives and I'm too big of a pussy to handle that. So, if ya like rats, try one. You get that bond of an intelligent creature and a longer time wif yer nu budday.

    Cats, always been a coin flip. They either love me or run from me. A nice cat is worth it's weight in gold. A shitty kitty won't get patted, dammit.

    Dunno. Next budro will either be a cat or a bird. Never tried a bird... But yeah, tiny dogs, man. Who knew? I didn't and I feel kinda dumb, lol.

    My mom has this fricking miniature dachshund that she loves. Problem is she is constantly, almost dangerously exhausted because the dog "wants to go outside every two hours during the night." I've tried to tell her thus isn't normal, but she's convinced if she doesn't let the dog out it's going to get a uti and die. Is there anything I can do do help her get the little shit under control?

      >They’re cute but seem way too fragile.
      i think the very small "toy size" dogs are quite fragile, but a regular smallish dog isn't overly fragile. I'm 6' 1" also and we're basically average height if you ignore Mexicans and Asians, so it's not like we're some giants or something. Just anecdotally being around other people I don't feel like I'm towering.

      I think the choice comes down to a lot of factors. If someone wants to go on long hikes with a dog, get a full size dog. If someone lives in an apartment, they should get a cat (no dog is okay for an apartment building). If someone wants to travel a lot with their dog, it's a lot easier to have a smaller one. I take my dog to work with me, so he just rides in the car and if I ever need to I can carry him. I could bring a full size dog to work but it's not nearly as practical. I live on only on a 1/4 acre, so playing in the yard a small dog is a better fit, it might be a bit small for a big dog to stretch its legs.

        depends where you live
        the average height in america is 5’10 but there’s no shortage of people 6’0 and above at the same time. same for europe. the global average is 5’7. if you live in the first world in general though youre not likely to feel ‘tall’ yeah

        i guess it depends if you really mean a ‘small’ dog or actually medium size in terms of fragility

    "Poop smells good" - rabbit "people"

    Based yorkiechad probably doubted this larping lady would even give the hotdog over after being fooled countless times and thought "lay down" was a trick to deaden his cursorial ability and make him easier to catch and restrain for some ungodly keratin removal ritual.

    A rabbit would never demonstrate such complexity of thought. And it's not a lot. Even cats can come to such conclusions.

      Original rabbits are better pets than small dogs owner here. Also the guy who had the yorkie. Never withheld treats from him when offered. I’m aware of proper animal training. I helped my wife show her golden retriever many times and discussed proper dog training with some of the best in the world. They all agreed yorkies are stupid as shit.

      And I never said rabbit poop smells good, just said by nature it smells better than omnivore/carnivore poop. That is a FACT. If you clean out your animals poop and pee the exact same across all animals. A house with a rabbit in it will still smell the best. Their piss stinks tho for a few seconds after they go in the litter, then it dissipates, just like any animal that uses the restroom over absorbent substrate.

        >Yorkie refused to be trained so it was stupid
        like they said they are a naturally distrusting and skeptical breed. I've heard similar poor assumptions from akita/husky owners trying training for dog reactivity... "my dog wont do whatever for the treats they must be stupid, they are meant to look at the treat not the other dog, reeeee" no, the dog has a personality trait a large part of which is intense distrust of strange dogs. And always a warranted one because they learn early on that strange dogs also distrust them because of the spitz breeds naturally dominant and powerful body language subjecting neotenous, floppy dogs to a sort of canine mogging. ESPECIALLY if the individual spitz is prone to the head-down walk as a matter of business. Like listen man your dog isn't stupid, they are naturally intimidating to other dogs and their reactivity is actually caused by them picking up on the incoming dogs stress level before you.

        The point of this anecdote is dogs have very complex minds compared to most other animals. Their motivations are very, very far beyond the realm of operant conditioning and BF skinner was wrong. the mind does in fact need understood or else you will psychologically ruin every other subject, ESPECIALLY with dogs that naturally have some adult willpower rather than a super submissive puppy-brain. Do not be quick to assume they are stupid. It's usually you're stupid for expecting their motivations to be simple materialist cost/value evaluations. You're supposedly smart and you operate on more than that, right? Or do you larp as spock?

        >rabbit poop smells better
        Dog houses smell comfy or oily, e/o
        Cat houses have a hint of bathroom you go blind to and then they smell comfy. It's just the litterbox, not the cat, most people dont know you're meant to use a liner and dump it every few days.
        Rabbit houses smell awful. And any room near a bird cage. It's a gross scent humans are naturally attuned to noticing. Sort of like a garbage can.

          Dogs also base a lot of their behavior off what can only be introspective feedback loops. It resembles the way humans think themselves into escalating to extreme positions after very mild experiences. They also resist conditioning when it involves one of their complex issues. I’ve had dogs that, if the treat was for doing something they disliked, would start spitting out the treats or carrying them and dropping them in bushes later.

          >the tiny dogs are not moronic even though they have legitimately fricked up brains! Because I say so!!!
          Like I said, I’m fully with you on dogs being smarter than cats and rabbits. Agree with you on the whole spitz thing even, shibas have been some of the most wonderful and intelligent animals I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with. And that their motivations are different depending on the dog.
          The only place we are different is I am saying that SMASHING and SLAMING a dog until it’s less than 10 pounds fricks up a ton of things in their head. So this “motivation” that you see i feel is just brain damage.

          >dog houses smell oily
          Yes, heavily dependent on breed and coat length tho, ungroomed long hair breeds REEK, while breeds like my yorkie you can’t even smell unless you are hunting for it.

          >it’s just the litterbox
          Ok now this is the biggest cope ever. Cats shed, they have tons of oils and musk to differentiate each other. And until a few months after their fixed I promise they pee all over your house. I’ve had roommates that have had cats before, and I genuinely could not stand the smell no matter how well they groomed or cleaned them. I do think that may be a hypersensitivity on my end tho.

          >birds
          Worst smelling animal by far. Literal monkey tier smell wise

          >rabbit houses smell like trash
          I have had dozens of people come into my home and not be able to guess I have pets. I utilize two litter boxes with liner on opposite sides of the house for my buns.
          As I said before. If properly taken care of. rabbits will provably smell better than any omnivore or carnivore.

    Young men get dogs "big enough to hug" to meet personal social needs but also external in the form of aesthetic and societal pressures.

    Old men lose that external pressure with age, so it becomes purely down to personal social needs and in addition practial needs. This is where you get the middle aged men dog phenomena.

      A small dog is the best pet you can have by every objective metric

      I don't like small dogs, but only because I am incredibly clumsy. It is guaranteed that I will step on most of my pets at some point, and I can tread on my German Shepherd without doing too much damage since he's a sturdy fricker, but a small dog? I might kill it. I would feel so bad. I feel bad enough stepping on paws and tails, but a small dog's paw won't just be trodden on, it will be ground to mush. What if it needed an amputation afterwards? And what about accidentally crushing a ribcage or a skull? I'd be scarred for life. I'd probably never had a pet again.

      Give me a dog I can't accidentally kill if I don't watch where I'm putting my feet 100% of the time.

      Notice the reference to arbitrary 'masculinity' and the attempted justification by the lie 'a small dog can't do anything for you'. Interestingly this comment not only displays the incredible insecurity of the ManChild but also the stupidity. It is known that small dogs did have jobs, terriers were ratters, spaniels were hunters and being a companion dog was, and still is, a very important job today. I hope someone else further studies this phenomenon.

        Actual problem. Poorly managed big dogs are fricking dangerous, so most people I know with dogs over 30 lbs make an effort to make them not dangerous. Most people I know with dogs under 15 lbs are terrible at keeping dogs, and are just skating on the fact that their dogs are not a threat to life for anyone who isn't an infant. Well trained and socialized small dogs are wonderful animals. They are not my preference but that is my preference. OTOH, if I don't know you and your small dog, understand that until I do, I'm going to be fricking skeptical of you, because of what I've described. I've had little shithead boot animals bite my regular sized dogs unprovoked too often otherwise, and if your 10 lb maltese mix starts a dog fight with my Bernese, my dog could kill yours just trying to shake it off of his lip. Yes, this happened to me, thankfully it didn't actually die, and thankfully it was in public with witnesses, but my Bernese stepped on a maltipoo that was hanging off of his face and broke its leg. The lawyer for that one was nearly twice as expensive as just paying that guy's vet bill would have been, but I needed to win to avoid having my dog declared dangerous, even though my dog was the one with tooth holes in his flesh.

        This isn't shade on little dogs, it's shade on people who own little dogs. Be a dog owner with a small dog, don't be a "small dog owner".

          >small dog owners don't train or treat their dogs like a dog because they aren't a threat, and therefore produce horribly mannered, undersocialized dogs
          EXACTLY! FRICKING THANK YOU! chihuahua's aren't generally snarly, nasty dogs, its just the homosexuals who get them manhandle the shit out of them & don't teach them jack about appropriate behavior. instead they laugh when their dog lunges and snarls and shows clear signs of stress or frustration because they repeatedly ignore its body language since it can't fricking mirk them. makes me so angry!!! chihuahuas CAN be affectionate, incredibly loyal dogs if you treat them well.

          Maybe if you're getting something like a Frenchie or a pug. Otherwise it's about the same as larger breeds assuming you're getting them from a breeder that screens their b***hes and studs.

          If you want something that's happy to exercise, try a mini poodle.

        Even more so than any deformed dog, they won’t even be aggressive with you unless you REALLY frick up
        >cheap and easy to feed
        100x cheaper than dogs, 1/4 cup of pellets a day and whatever leafy greens and veg you have laying around
        >and vet
        Don’t need a billion shots, most all animal vets have rabbit specialists and really they only need a yearly checkup that costs 50 bucks unless you really frick up again and break ones back

        I will also add

          Rabbits are unintelligent NPC animals. They have no more personality than you project onto them.
          >easier to train
          So is a rat, because training (doing dumb shit for free) requires low intelligence or mental illness. Hence why trainable dogs like border collies eat their own feet but much smarter wolves do not.

            The only reason you say dogs are smarter is cus they vocalize. Just say your too inept to read body language and move on.
            Also, training. Realizing preforming an action being about an award is a high intelligence trait. My yorkie couldn’t even remember lay down if there was a full blown hot dog at stake.
            Also rabbits are probably the best naturally smelling indoor animal since they are true herbivores.

            Married, white male. Good relationship with both my parents.i have experience with just about every pet. Exotic or not, and rabbits are the best by far.

              Dogs are smarter because dogs. are. smarter. Rabbits simply lack the cortical complexity to achieve what dogs can
              >training is high IQ!
              Biddability is an aspect of temperament. Is the effort worth the reward? No! Or else every human would do anything for money. Do you know that great apes consciously resist training? That dolphins do? That smarter dogs like heelers and beagles do? Yes because they are smart enough to realize your request is stupid.

              Rabbits are not smart at all. Do you know why there are dogs that can understand thousands of words with grammar but even in the west rabbits are just livestock? Because they are NPC animals and training for them is “just conditioning”. They do not think, so they can not think otherwise and simply follow their conditioning. A dog bargains and rebels. A rabbit mindlessly obeys.

                True. When you train a dog you teach manners and processes for managing relatively complex tasks, like guiding the blind, navigating tough conditions, helping people with poor mobility, getting help for the incapacitated, and fighting people.

                When you train a rabbit it is simply conditioning. The rabbit has no complex inner world to confound this. They simply get food, drink water, avoid danger, have sex, rest in safe place. They are very dumb animals with literally 1/8th the brainpower of a small dog. Their brains are so simple they’re actually a choice for study because it’s easier to draw conclusions about the underlying mechanisms with a dumber, more predictable subject as they have fewer mechanisms to control for experiments.

                Your dog does not obey you because they do not like you and believe you are worth listening to. The rabbit lacks the additional forms of thought needed to come to such conclusions. Also see: you can unironically train a fish to come to a signal more reliably than you can a malinois.

                At least we dont pretend rabbit shit is odorless
                At least cats dont habitually shit outside the box

                At least cats have some intelligence. A rabbit doesn’t. Cats are dumb and fail causality tests and they have more brain matter even for their body size, and more refined brain structures, than rabbits. Hence cats are more entertaining pets with actual personality, not “behaviors”.

                Listen. I am with dog people when they say their husky smells good. That is a matter of opinion or DNA. It’s like a cologne or a body odor. A lot of people also think woman armpit sweat smells good. A lot of people hate it. Its complex, nebulous, it involves too many variables to really predict. Odor producer diet and DNA, odor detector life experience, genetic memory in the oflactory bulb is real, yadda.

                You however think literal fricking shit smells like roses. It is rotting, partially digested rabbit food. It smells like a salad night shit. Your home reeks of steaming and stale compost.

            And yes, you don’t stink up your backyard, they keep it all confined in a box.

            Adding you CAN NOT train them out of being extremely destructive you can only contain and control the destruction

            You have to redirect. For my lady who digs a lot. I got her a forage mat, she only digs on that now.

            Cats are 1000000x cleaner.

            They literally have the same litter, and rabbits poops smell less. So i dont know what your talking about. All other care being equal rabbits are far less stinky. And they dont have a musk like cats do that stinks up your whole house.

            Chihuahuas and beagles are the healthiest dogs and beagles are actually one of the smartest. They can go 8 hours without pissing/shitting indoors.

            Rabbits are soulless animals with even less personality than cats and only an overly maternal weirdo would ever think otherwise.

              I think that because i understand animal behavior and that rabbits are hardly any more intelligent than a rat

              I understand animal behavior very well including yours. Your dog is hard to train because it has enough brain to have an actual personality and make internally rational judgements that appear irrational to you (“a hot dog is tasty so it should listen to me”-you “this human is annoying me and im not hungry because of that”-dog). Rabbits are conditioning based robots and interacting with a mindless thing glitches your theory of mind into inventing a personality for them. This makes your theory of mind right all the time which releases more dopamine as long as you remain ignorant of the fact that the rabbit is not actually very smart and is basal and shrewlike in intelligence. The dog has its own personality and is another species so your theory of mind is constantly wrong resulting in dopamine starvation and frustration.

                Im not arguing their smarter at all, just that the NPC nature you perceive is false. I’m aware carnivores have to be more intelligent and make far more decisions than herbivores. But herb social heiarchy, cognitive process, and communication are very complex. And not npc.

                Small dogs, that this thread is about. Have so many mental issues and mental moronation it isn’t even funny, I used the hotdog to showcase that the thought process aren’t fully there. Versus my akbash/gsd I had could problem solve very well, and evaluate what treat was worth what action.

                The yorkie is a terrier. These dogs are very well known for stubbornness and independent thought.

                Although everyone knows that any dog could, they are one of the few to pass the sally-anne test in laboratory conditions because they are inherently skeptical of others behavior.
