ahh, finally a place where everyone loves chihuahua's as much as i do !

I've been reading through some of the posts and this place is so friendly but I need some advice

my little girl is coming home in five weeks and I 1] dont have a name and 2] i'm worried about the whole training aspect. she is akc registered and her sister from another litter(who is 2 now) is VERY friendly and VERY loveing of people, and I was just wondering if that ran in genetics or maybe if the breeder of the pups trained her well or what? I'm going to ask the breeder on friday what i should do about training my little baby, but I just needed some second opinions! I don't want my little girl to be timid and shy!

thanks!

Hi Sarah and welcome

1 = go to the chihuahua names section we have you will get lots of help and find loads of inspiration.

2 = I believe there is something genetic about temprement but it also has alot to do with how your puppy is socialised during the first few months of life - you will get lots of tips and advice on this here

anything else just ask us we will all help where we can :wave:

Sarah,

Welcome to the forum. :wave: I am glad you found our forum. It is a great place to make friends and learn alot of good iformation. :)

I do believe that it is gentic. If you socialize her well as a baby she will be a happy loving dog to people... Gadget has been socialized since he was 3 weeks old. I have taken him every where with me and He is very friendly to most people but there has been a few that he isn't friendly to, but I think that he is starting to get his senses and starting to know what people are good and what people are bad. He is 12 weeks today and he loves going byee bye.

His mom and dad both have really good personalities, dad is less of a people dog then his mom is. His dad has the sense about people that Gadget is starting to develope.

can't wait to see pictures of you new furbaby :)

Welcome! I am excited for you to be bringing your little Chihuahua home in 5 short weeks!

Definitely genetics plays a part in the temprament of a Chi, but also socialization. Introduce your little one to as many different people, animals, sounds, and environments as early as you can and you will have a much friendlier Chi. GOOD LUCK! :D

hi and welcome! i can't wait to see pics of your baby when you get her!

i don't have any tips to give you as for training every dog i teach just listens to me. the vets at my job tell me i have a certain way about me..... but i can tell you that genetics and socializing play a huge part in behavior. and i just posted a bunch of names in the name forum.... there are lots of suggestions on there!
