You are familiar with the proverb, “treat everyone the same,” right? This should likewise be the case for dogs, regardless of their size, and this should be the case whether they are little or enormous. Believe it or not, people tend to generalise about dogs in the same ways that they do about humans. It’s possible that our preconceived notions about how little chihuahua dogs behave in comparison to big ones would cause us to jump to the wrong judgement about this dog’s friendliness. Some unfavourable and incorrect conceptions about tiny pets include the idea that they are more hostile because of their lack of size and that they bark more often than bigger canines do. On the other hand, people who own huge dogs sometimes hear that their pets seem like savage murderers who are poised to pounce on their victim and tear it to shreds. This may be frustrating for owners of large dogs. The stereotypes that people have regarding huge and tiny dogs are simply that: stereotypes. As you will see in a moment, the fact of the issue is that the conduct of dogs, from their point of view, has absolutely nothing to do with their size. This will become clear to you very soon.
You won’t believe it, but dogs tend to exhibit behaviours that are quite consistent with one another. In contrast, there is not a huge amount of difference between it and humans. Each of us has both good and terrible days. Our dispositions might change drastically from one instant to the next. The fact that all people are descended from the same species explains this phenomenon. Both toy and working breeds of dogs are descended from the same species. In point of fact, they originate from what is more often referred to as the canine subspecies of the wolf. The argument is that all dogs, regardless of size, act in a manner that is natural and instinctual, similar to how people behave.
It is anticipated of persons who live in civilised societies that they will behave in a certain way or manner that is congruent with how society operates. The vast majority of individuals are capable of comprehending its meaning. The same is true for all dogs because of the individual behaviours that they exhibit. But as humans, we often interpret or classify behaviour depending on the size of the animal in question. It is undesirable behaviour, for instance, for a giant Boxer weighing 100 pounds or more to jump up and down on his or her master. On the other hand, if the same behaviour is shown by a Chihuahua that weighs just four pounds as a pet, some people will find it “cute,” which would justify the behaviour.
The conduct of both of the dogs, in point of fact, is identical to one another. The goal of the 100-pound Boxer was to establish his superiority over his master. The same may be said for the Chihuahua, which weighs just four pounds. This is the same conduct that has been done with the same intention. In spite of this, people get the impression that the enormous dog is a vicious murderer, but the perspective of the smaller animal is that it is engaging in fun behaviour.
The basic line is that dogs of any size—be they little, medium, or large—should never be given the opportunity to get away with behaving in this manner. When they are performing in the present, dogs do not take into consideration how big they are. In point of fact, they do not consider size to be a relevant criterion. It is not unusual to see a smaller dog try to attack a bigger one with its sharp teeth. It makes no difference whether a tiny dog or a huge dog commits the same misdeed, as you can see for yourself here. Both should be punished without exception for their behaviour.
