Is it normal for chihuahua puppies to shake violently when in unfamiliar territory? I gave my chi a bath (he is 9 weeks old) and he was shaking so badly I gave him some nutrical just in case. If my mom wants to hold him he starts shaking, he even shakes when I take him into the next room. He only wants to be beside me and does not seem to enjoy leaving my room. Should I coax him with treats? I have never had a dog that shakes.
