Default Hi this is Gabby!

Gabby is 6 months old now born 07/17/17. We brought her home when she was 8 weeks old and she only weighed 1.9 lbs. The breeder told us she would always be tiny. Well, to our surprise at 6 months she weighs 5 lbs and very sturdy looking, not over weight, just sturdy. She is a good girl and a complete joy to her mommy and daddy. Gabby is 100% pee pad trained so I never have to wonder where she went, she always uses her pee pad I put by the back door. I only take her outside to play with us as our backyard is woods and hawks all around. Neighbors have told me horror stories about hawks getting their pets. So knowing this she is safe and doing good with her pee pads. I do notice when I brush her that she seems to be getting dry skin as we are too with the winter months and the heat on all of the time. I am wondering what do you use if your chi gets dry skin? Thanks so much for reading, Diane

Coconut oil! Start with just a few drops and build up to 1/2-1 teaspoon. If you go too fast, you may have diarrhea on your pads! Also a bath with an oil in it or one for dandruff in dogs.

I, too, don't take my 2 chihuahuas out unless I am with them. They really don't care to go out as it is REALLY cold here in IL. We've seen coyotes run through the back yard, and there are hawks too.

My Chi was adopted and tricky to toilet train but was doing really well until my 15 month old grandaughters came to stay for a couple of days. He really wasn't keen on them and has started going to toilet in the house again even though he has plenty of opportunities to go outside.
Any suggestions please?

Is he a puppy?
Does he just pee? Or both?
Does he use puppy pads?
A family member had got a puppy Chi and the pup continued to pee inside the house but only in a certain spot. Strangely they didn't allow him in that room anymore and he had stopped (the room was/is being remodeled so not an issue as he shouldn't be in there anyways)
Jojo always would pee in his kennel and I mean always. But over the past year he's gotten better maybe it was a schedule thing though I'm not 100% sure as I once put him in and 30 minutes later he had peed. But this weekend he was taken out every 2-4 hours (was in a different house) and no accidents lol never been so proud of him.

I would say take him outside and stay with him until he "goes" once he does reward him with treats and praise like he just did the best thing in the world.
Is he crate trained? Maybe if he doesn't "go" when your outside with him put him in his crate and try again in like 30 minutes until he does go and then he'd be allowed to roam the house freely. This is what my family member did with the pup as well.
I've also have read that if you don't clean well the spot they pee it sorta makes them want to pee there again since it smells like urine. But I'm not too sure. I usually just use a bunch of vinegar.

Go back to square one. Start over again. It seems as if the 18 month old babes really upset him? Use a pen/crate so that he doesn't have access to the house unless you are watching him. A leash you tie to yourself is another option. If these babes are a regular visitor, then he needs to be socialized with them. He needs to look at them with a 'oh goody, foods coming' look!
