They are very cuddly, all dogs are, but small dogs really like to be on your lap a lot, I have noticed they also have more sensitive stomachs but it also depends on the breed... what breed is your dog? and how small is he/she going to be fully grown? As far as I have read and been told any dog that is under 5 lbs could mean a few health problems in the future.

As for training, there is really no difference, but remember that even once fully trained, they cannot hold it as much as a bigger dog would.
Small white dogs are very sensitive , I found this out recently . I know Marty does not like me to stand right over him when I put his harness on him. I have to bend way down or have him jump onto the couch.
Oh boy , I am guilty of stepping on poor doggie, I have to remind myself to look down especially when I am cooking as Marty is a Piggypoo and always around when he smell food.
