Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Potty-training is an essential process that every owner must go through with their Chihuahua. Although Chihuahuas can be successfully potty-trained at any age, it's recommended that you start as soon you bring them into your home, preferably when they are still a puppy. Before you start attempting to potty-train your Chihuahua, you'll need to pick up a few basic items first. Note: This isn't an entire list of everything you need to own a Chihuahua, but rather a list of items that will come in handy when potty-training your Chihuahua. One of the key factors to successfully potty-training your Chihuahua is letting them know when they do something bad. Another little trick I've learned that helps to potty-train a Chihuahua is to always take them to the same place outside to do their business. Some owners are under the impression that forcing a small Chihuahua to stay cooped up inside a crate is cruel and inhumane.
I have a six month old chihuahua, I have tryed to potty train her outside, but I live in the north and some days we are minus 30 celcius and it is just too cold for her to be out. I have a 5 month old Chihuahua Ive had since she was 3 weeks old, bue to being rejected by her mother. Hey there, I just recently adopted a 3 month old Chihuahua full blooded and I also have a 2 year old Shih-Tzu who is Puppy pad trained.
I adopted a Chihuahua mix from the shelter in September they think he is about 3 years old. Unless you plan on keeping your furry four-legged friend in a fenced-in backyard (not recommended), you'll have to teach them to use the bathroom outside the house and not inside. During the first 6-12 months of a Chihuahua's life, their brains are developing at a rapid pace; therefore, they will naturally catch on to routines and consistency.
It's an inevitable part of owning any indoor dog, regardless of breed, so don't expect your Chihuahua to be any different.


Chihuahuas have a keen sense of smell and will be able to tell where they've used the bathroom before.
Instead of "hoping" your Chihuahua doesn't use the bathroom inside the house, you can rest assured knowing they are safely confined to their crate. I have 2 sister full bred Chihuahuas, now over 6 months old and still keep pooing in the house. At first he was PERFECT and would not have any accidents in the house he slept where ever he wanted but now it’s so common and it happends too often.
Every time we put her on her pee pad she will sit there stubbornly for even an hour and as soon as she walks off will pee instantly on the carpet or floor.. The reason why your dog will not use the mat is because she is either feeling pressured or doesn’t want to go because she knows you want her to. Unfortunately, however, Chihuahuas have a notorious reputation for being a breed that's difficult and downright stubborn to housebreak.
You can use this to your advantage by instilling the basic potty-training commands in your Chihuahua's head. While all of this fine, you need to place potty-training at the top of your list of priorities. After you see them peeing or pooping inside the house, tell them "No!" and walk them outside. The fact is, however, that a crate gives your Chihuahua their own personal space in which they can call home. Naturally, most Chihuahuas won't use the bathroom in the same crate where they sleep and rest.
For the past month, she has been using the potty all through the house, usually on an area rug or on the carpet. Our Chihuahua will use the puppy pad sometimes but most of the times she’ll go and pee on our rug in our living room.


Chihuahuas are quite emotional, and verbally telling them "no" while pointing at them is all it takes to get the message across. You can begin walking your Chihuahua to other parts of the yard once they are older and fully potty-trained, but stick to a designated area during their early puppy years. They like the comfort of the house and I dont use pads as I dont agree with them and dont want it in my house. We have successfully gotten her to potty on her pee pad several times but it has taken a lot of time hours and patience.
The truth is that practically any Chihuahua, no matter how old they are, can be potty-trained when it's done correctly and under the right circumstances. As the owner of three Chihuahuas myself, I frequently find my Chis hiding in their crates even with they are allowed to roam the house free.
This works in your favor, as it lets your Chihuahua develop the skills necessary to hold their pee until you take them outside. When we are not home she is confind to the hallway and bathroom, but when I am home she is loose in the house. Other than that maybe you and your dog have to zip up in cozy jackets and take a 10 minute potty break outside.
I dont see why it is acceptable because they are small As if it was my german shepherd doing that in the house she would be gone. I’m trying to teach him that it is unacceptable to go in the house!I also crate him during the day when no one is home! Treats go a long ways when it comes to potty-training and obedience training, so use them to your advantage.
