Why do so many purebred dogs seem to need to have their anal glands expressed regularly?

Asked by NightStalker (456 points ) September 30th, 2011

I have a few friends with smaller purebred dogs. They have to take their dog into to vets to have the anal glands expressed regularly. I had never heard of this before.

Is it fairly new?

Does it have to do with the size of the dog?

Does breeding have anything to do with this?
