So, we've read a few times that Chihuahuas can sometimes be hard to housetrain...
We've bought the training pads, although a difficulty we're finding is that when Pixie goes for a wee in 'another/wrong' place and we replace her on the matt, she stops and doesnt seem to go again - the wee's are that short/small! ;)

Obv with bigger breeds their wee's are bigger so their still weeing after replacing and you can say 'WeeWee' and praise on the matt...

Any tips with this?
Thanks!

I would leave the pad down with some wee on it (when she goes)or wipe some on the pad,so that she smells it and when you catch her near or on it lots of praise and a treat.

You have to be persistent and when she goes...put her on the wee pad. She will learn....and the bigger she gets ...the more she will wee :)

Make sure she doesnt have to large of an area to free roam. If you have to then you may want to tether her to you so you can keep an eye on her. When she starts sniffing around then put her on her pee pad and when she goes praise her like crazy. Get really excited about it so she will see that this really makes you happy. There are different pee pad brands out there and some do not have as strong of a urine scent as others. As said above leave some wee on it and that way she will know that is where to go for the first little while.
