  1. Chihuahua Questions
    Coco has been with us for just over a week. Got her from the breeder at 6.5 months. Not yet spayed (appointment this week). She is very shy but not comfortable and happy with us and our two other dogs. Not too bad with strangers, my adult neice was able to pick her up and keep her on her knees...
  2. Chihuahua Questions
    Freddie (now 12 weeks old) has now realised the best way to get attention from us is to sit by our feet and look up at us, which is very cute and obviously much better than jumping up and whining! But I now feel like I have to give him attention whenever he does, which I can't really do all the...
  3. Chihuahua Questions
    I'm really hoping that Freddie doesn't become too yappy, (partly because we may have to move if any neighbours complain); My tactic is to just ignore him whenever he makes any noise, beit whining or barking, and praise him whenever his is calm and quiet. Is this the right way to go about it...

    I REALLY want to share this because I posted here a few years back about Teddy's barking issues. He's not one of those dogs that's super social with everyone. He doesn't care much about other dogs, doesn't really like strangers, he only tolerates the rest of my family.. Part of it is that I...
  7. Chihuahua Health
    My chi will be 10 in December. Throughout his entire life, he has slept burrowed under the covers in bed. About three or four months ago, he would jump off the bed as soon as we turned the light off and go sleep on the floor in the bathroom. Now, in the past three weeks or so, as soon as the...
  8. Chihuahua Questions
    I adopted my 1-year-old chi in April and have been battling with what seems to be an instinctual problem. I have a guinea pig and my chi (Bonnie) apparently wants to kill her. I have had to raise the cage, buy a new table, and have even tried moving the cage to multiple rooms without success...
  9. Chihuahua Questions
    Hi guys! Wow, this is like my 5th question I am posting here, but I am a new chi owner and find this forum very helpful. So thank you already in advance :) My 8 month old male (fixed) chihuahua, August, rarely rarely barks when he is with me. He is calm, sleeps a lot, is not very playful and a...
