What are Chihuahuas like?
Chihuahuas are adventurous, courageous, and appreciate affection. They make a fine companion dog, attaching themselves to a human. Some like to lick the faces of their owners. According to Dog Breed Info, there is something that Chihuahua owners do that might contribute to behaviors we don’t want.
Why it is just as important to train a little dog as it is a big dog
When a dog is as small as a Chihuahua, it’s easy to let them get away with behaviors that we would not let a big dog get away with, such as jumping on people. Letting behaviors go that we would normally train otherwise in a larger dog, it’s possible that we contribute to them being jealous, aggressive with other dogs or humans, because we have not let them know which behavior is acceptable, and which are not.
If owners treat Chihuahuas like they would a big dog and train them properly, they would make wonderful little companions.
How to care for Chihuahuas in the winter
Chihuahuas do not like cold weather. They prefer warm weather. In the cold months, have blankets available for them to snuggle in. It’s tempting to carry them around because they are so tiny, even so, keep in mind they do need their exercise.
What are the exercise needs of a Chihuahua?
They are actually quite active. Play can help them let out some energy, but walking everyday is important for the Chihuahua, for both physical and mental stimulation.
