Do you perceive owners of Large dogs or Small dogs as more responsible about owning their pets?

By Shane . Created on 12 May, 2021
Often we hear stories about dogs that are perceived as being aggressive or nasty and ill spirited - sometimes our experiences have been that we have been frightened by a big dog, or we've been snarled at by a smaller breed. Dog owners are often also characterised as egotistical or even neurotic by people because of their chosen breeds of dogs, this poll is asking if you have had negative experiences dealing with owners of big dogs or owners of small dogs. Both types of dogs require similar training and socialisation, often it is perceived that small dogs don't get the same degree of training that larger breeds do because they're less likely to cause harm. Conversely it can be percieved that large dog owners' ego prevents them from training their dogs properly.

Having been a dog owner for 60yrs, it does not matter the size of the dog, its the owners brain size that matters. Some people should not own a dog, their dogs have no rules or training, cause fights, bark from dawn till dusk etc etc. Sad but true, just the same as some people should not be parents!

what rubbish! All dog and pet owners should be responsible. makes no difference the size. This often depends on facilities, resources and numerous other factors.

No matter what size a dog is, a mistreated animal is still going to be the result.

The size of the dog has nothing to do with the intellegence of the owner. You get sensible owners of all different sizes and types who look after their dogs well and socialise them and exercise them according to their needs. You also get people who have dogs for all the look at me dog reasons who put no effort in and are indirectly unkind to their poor miserable puppies.

Depends on how responsible the owners are
