Hi, I just got that book, the Chihuahua handbook and it says there that there are two types of growling. One is play growling, when the tail is wagging and the dog is excited (perhaps because you are playing a game with her .) The agressive type growl is not accompanied by tail wagging and involves an agressive pose.
Poppy growls when we play a game of tag with her, or chase. We get tired before she does and then she asks for us to play more by bending down on her front legs and sticking her butt in the air and growling, whilst wagging her tail! This is playful growling and is called the play-bow position.
She doesnt growl other than that!
