Some FAQs about Chihuahua​

Chihuahuas are loving and loyal and make good pets for first-time owners. These little dogs have big personalities and range from feisty and outgoing to shy and timid. Intelligent and fiercely loyal to the people they love, Chihuahuas will happily accompany their owners anywhere and everywhere.

Most Chihuahuas do tend to bark a lot and bark quite loudly, and luckily this isn’t a sign that something is wrong. If you own a Chihuahua and are worried that they’re barking too much or want to train them to become less yappy, don’t fear, certain training methods can help with excessive barking.

Known for their playful, affectionate, and heart-melting looks, the Chihuahuas love to cuddle with their beloved humans. They enjoy settling down in their owner’s lap. As they are tiny in size, cuddling and snuggling provide them warmth and comfort, especially in cold climates.

Chihuahuas are extremely intelligent and are quick learners. They are eager to please and respond well to positive training methods. Make training fun and have plenty of treats on hand. They can successfully compete in dog sports, like agility and obedience trials.

In regard to safety factors, as long as the environment is warm and safe and enough food and water is supplied, a healthy Chihuahua can be okay alone for up to 9 or 10 hours.

For all their sass, most Chihuahuas enjoy an abundance of lap time and do not enjoy spending too much time outdoors. They are widely known to gravitate toward one person and reject new people, but that may be because dogs are more inclined to like those that are more in sync with their own personality.

There’s no fool-proof method for predicting exactly how long they can live, but current data suggests that Chihuahuas live an average of 15 to 20 years when properly cared for by a loving owner.

Chihuahuas are undeniably special dogs that can easily make a life-long friend to a child. And while they may not be ideal for families expecting babies, they can do well with children if you take training and socializing seriously.

Chihuahuas are Great Watch Dogs

Because they are loyal and animated, chihuahuas make great watch dogs. They are a vocal breed, and are wary of outsiders, so if someone approaches your home or aims to intrude, your chihuahua is going to make sure everyone knows about it.

CHIHUAHUA

Chihuahua

The smallest dog breed in the world, the Chihuahua is a highly intelligent, easily trained dog that makes a delightful companion. The breed is thought to have originated in China, but it is named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua, where it first came to prominence in the 1890s. The Chihuahua’s size means it can be taken anywhere, making it the perfect lap dog. Possessive by nature, the Chihuahua is also an excellent watchdog and is ready to stand up for itself even if the opposition is far bigger. It is not suitable for a family with young children.

The Breed History 

In Mexico an indigenous dog, the Techichi was represented in historical records beginning in the 9th century and is considered the primary source of the modern Chihuahua’s genes. Some historians believe the dog was crossed with a hairless breed from the Orient at some point. In the travels of Columbus, a similar small mute dog was noted in Cuba. This type of dog was highly treasured in Toltec and Aztec civilizations, so much so that they were often buried with their masters. It is unlikely that the origin of the breed was just in the Chihuahua area of Mexico, but since many of the foundation dogs that were exported in the mid 1800s came from this state, the name was selected. Longhaired varieties may have resulted from Yorkshire Terrier or Papillion crosses. First exports to the US occurred in the early 19th century, and AKC registration began in 1908.
