About Me

Thanks for visiting my website, Big Blog for Small Dogs! Whether your small dog or puppy is struggling with potty training, you want to learn how to find a quality dog food or treats suitable for small breed dogs, or if you want to find entertaining toys for your little one, you’re in the right place.


A little about me

My name is Missy and I am owned by 5 Chinese Cresteds. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the breed, there are two coat types of Chinese Cresteds – the hairless which are mostly hairless and powderpuff which have a full thick double coat. Their pictures are at the bottom of this post.

All of them are in the small dog or toy dog categories since they weigh around 10 pounds.

All of my Chinese Cresteds (I lovingly like to call them my monsters as you’ll read throughout my website) are adults now but I went from puppyhood to adulthood with each one. This means I have firsthand knowledge from raising 5 very different dogs (yes they are all the same breed but their personalities and needs were and still are different to this day) and I can confidently tell you what works and what doesn’t – what they like and what they don’t.

Why I want to help you

I’m an animal lover at heart but I really really love dogs. My dogs are as much a part of my family as the people are and I take their care very seriously. I’ve done hours and hours of research on multiple topics related to owning dogs whenever the need came up.

I think the first topic was potty training or house breaking. I researched how to do it, applied what I read, and then found what works and what doesn’t. That’s just one example. I want to share what I learned here and hopefully save people and their furry babies the stress and headache of having to go through the same elimination process themselves.


My mission

I’ll be talking about training issues and how to solve them, how to pick quality dog foods and which ones are my favorites, and so much more. Take your time and look around and make sure you check back often since I’ll be adding new content all the time.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.


All the best,

    Hi Missy,

    What a fab website name, love it! And I have learnt something today, that being the existence of the Chinese Crested dog. I am a dog lover and my best pal is my Border Collie called Skai. Dogs really do provide fabulous companionship don’t they? My Father was a canine behavioral professional and always said the majority of the time with K9 behavior issues was that the human just did not understand the animal fully and their expectations were too human like!

    Thank you for sharing the information about your dogs, passion and what you do.

    All the best

      Hi Craig!

      My first dog was a border collie named Gizzy. I loved that girl to pieces but when she was a puppy she destroyed everything!

    AW! Such cute puppies you have! My husband and I want to have a dog someday but we can’t agree on the kind of dog. He wants the big and fluffy ones and i want one like the ones you have. This is a great site for me, i believe that it will help me to know more about puppies and food they should eat

      Thank you! I’m sure when the time is right you guys will pick the right dog, or rather the right dog will pick you.
