Caress to a certain extent as she is just a baby and misses the nurturing of her mother. I know we have jobs and other duties and can't nurture 24/7. I've always kept my pups in a safe bathroom when I would go out. They will whine cause they don't understand, but it does get better. Clingy is a chi thing and the majority of owners wouldn't have it any other way. That's why most of us own chis. Their devotion is unlike any other animal IMO.

there a couple more on there but here's one, there not the best videos, I had to use my laptop to record -.-

I'm impressed with your puppy lol
I've started 'come here' and 'sit' with Ginger and she is very stubborn and won't eat any of my dog treats. I think I'm going to have to buy a pack of shredded cheese.

Seriously, great progress! Soon you are the one that will be giving advice on training.....
When i had my shiba he would just tag along with me around the house but he knows his boundary. For example, when i am eating he would just play with the toys i got for him. He would not even bother me. Second, when i leave the room and he was left behind he would not cry or whine. He was just a perfect little pup. I got him when he was 9 weeks old.

Now switching to a chihuahua really surprised me. Their behavior really just surprised me.

Jane follows me around the whole time, when i eat on the couch she also whines when she isnt with me, when i go to the restroom and if she doesnt see me for just a second she would whine and cry a lot even though she is on my bed. So i mean chihuahua's behavior really really shocked me. That is why i am kind of freaking out lol.

Thanks

I might really so that exercise to her. Thanks a lot

Awwww, that is so pitiful! She's so adorable, and boy does she totally love you!! So many people have given great advice. I would second the larger pen, no collar unless you are with her, and be sure to put something like a T-shirt in there with your scent on it. Another thing you can do is give her something to chew on that will occupy her when you leave such as a kong with peanut butter in it or freeze baby food in it--something she has to work on for a while and holds her attention for the moment, so she doesn't realize you have gone. I might tend to go with the radio over animal planet because sometimes if the program shows dogs barking that might upset her. I know if Lulu notices barking dogs on TV she perks up. lol

Hahaha that is so cute for lulu. I am just imagining that right now in my head lol. Anyways, i am really thinking about getting a kong and somewhat stuff something in there.

I have been doing the exercise where i come back in and out of the door and it looks like it is working. I just need more time and i just wish everything will turn out well.

Chi's are 'velcro dogs' they want to be with you all the time. Chi love is like no other, that is why we think they are the best

I didn't read through all the replies but this makes me so sad. #1 your puppy was taken away from it's mother/littermates WAY too young. I'm a breeder & never let them go earlier than 11wks. 12+wks is more normal. Small breeds need a little extra time as they typically don't mature as quickly as bigger breeds. This behavior I believe is an outcome from leaving too early. Although with some puppies it is more normal...it depends on the pup.

#2 think of your puppy. She has gone from being with *someone* constantly for as long as she's been alive to being all by herself. She is missing her friends. Have some sympathy & don't look at it as a "behavior" that needs immediate fixing. It is a pain & annoying but it isn't w/o reasoning. With consistent routine & ignoring of the behavior she will get better. But it will take time.

#3 This is a CHIHUAHUA. They were bred for companionship. Their PURPOSE is to be with their people period. They were not bred to herd or hunt. They were bred to be with us. When I go to the bathroom I have at least 3 friends go with me. If this behavior bothers you (and some people it does & that is fine)...but you definitely shouldn't have gotten a Chi. This is dog breed research 101 which should be done before looking for a puppy.

With all this said...for the age of your pup & how long you have had her this is NORMAL behavior. Bringing attention to her by yelling, trying to correct, even soothing, etc...it will make the behavior worse. Best thing you can do is ignore it & DO NOT let her out of the crate until she is quiet & calm. That right there will help her to realize the pitching a fit isn't going to get her what she wants. Good luck to you!
