Small fluffy dogs are popular for apartment and city dwellers. However, some small fluffy dog breeds are more active than others. A small, fenced-in yard or daily walks are necessary to keep these dogs happy and free from behavior problems.

The Bichon Bolgnese is shy, reserved and not very active. They are content to hang around the house with their owner for the most part. The Maltese is another breed that does not demand a lot of daily walking or exercise. In contrast, the Pomeranian is a small, fluffy dog that is very active and will not do well without daily exercise.

One trait that all fluffy dogs seem to have in common is Small Dog Syndrome. Without early, proper training they may try to take the leading role in the household. It is important to make them understand that the owner is the pack leader. If not, behaviors like barking too much and snapping at guests will occur. Otherwise, small, fluffy dogs, and larger ones for that matter can be fun, cuddly pets.
