Default My chi won't leave my room

My chi lolly is too scared to leave my room, she doesn't move at all when I put her on the wooden floor or any other floor other then carpet in my room.. She just won't move, I think she's scared cuz she shakes aswell n looks all nervous, I would like her to feel comfortable to come out and explore but she won't

When a chi comes from a place that they were on carpeting all the time, the plain wooden floor is very scary. Work with her, ie, toss tiny bits of something delicious on the floor just beyond the carpet. She will stretch to get it. Then move the treat by inches, until she has to leave the carpet entirely. Slowly does it. May take a week or more. Don't rush it.

(a short story: my brother and I were adopted at 19 months of age. We were in a nursery with linoleum flooring. When we came home, we were terrified of rugs! Took awhile before my Mom and Dad could put us down without screaming!)

Treats are a great idea!
I would also give her time. She will want to explore after she feels safe but until then I would just throw treats to her to entice her away from the room. Don't force her to get the treat just let her decide she wants it.
I would also spend some time with her in your room so that she grows to trust you as well.

Some Chihuahua feels fear when we to take him or her out. They want to live in silent and reserve environment. You should take your pup in to garden. She will get a confidence when she will see other pups.
