We have just been given a 10 week old male Havashire Terrier unexpectedly. DP and I have only previously had larger dogs so are wondering if there are any training programmes which work well with bouncy little fluffballs like this?

For anyone that's wondering, he is a gorgeous little ball of black fur with a tiny white tuft on his chest smile

Any training method that promotes positive force free training would be fine.

What's a Havashire terrier?

Clicker training's good, but I don't really see why training a small dog is any different to a big one. smile

A dog is a dog, largely.

Training is training.

As someone with a small breed puppy I'd say it is exactly the same. I think treating them differently as how you end up with so called small dog syndrome.

Thank you all. I was worried about small dog syndrome, and did think training would be the same as for any dog, but wanted to check first.

I think I'll give clicker training a go, I have heard good things about it, but I've never done it before. Are there any good books or online tutorials anyone can recommend?

Kikopup on YouTube is great.
