Dear Anonymous, My boyfriend has a red heeler about 4yrs old. He says after the age of 2yrs, your dog should start calming down. You should try an anxiety blanket on your dog.

I have a 2yr old long hair chihuahua, named Emma. I took her to the groomer for the first time, and apparently wasn't clear as to the medium hair trim that I wanted for her. She came back shaved like a yorkie. I was devestated. How long will it take for her hair to grow back? Thank you.

    She will look pretty good in about 2 - 3 months but takes about 6 months for the full coat to grow back in.  You could wait till the groomer was asleep and shave her head.  LOL   - an idea.

    Many don't like being alone.  Try leaving an unwashed t-shirt and socks in the kennel with him.  They don't need hair cuts but they do need grooming - which in some cases is a hair cut.  If you don't keep them brushed regularly, they mat and it gets hard to get the mats out.  Shaking is part of the nature of a chihauhua - which is 50% of the Chion mixure.

    We are still looking, and this sheepdog looks good to think about.. can you get more details as to his character and behaviour in house, and with other dogs, also where he lives.>

Our Chi has been 'honking' (like a reverse sneeze) and sometimes it will last about 2-3 minutes. It's like his whole body will jump. It worries me that something is very wrong. A family friend says her Chi does the same thing. The vet said there's nothing to worry about BUT when it goes on like this I wonder. He will do this maybe 3-4 times a week. Should I be worried like I am?

    I don't know why they do that but they do.  It's normal, sounds really strange and of course their whole body gets into the act. I thought maybe allergies or a sinus problem.  I think they must get flem back in their throat.

    My chi does the same thing and our vet told us its his airway collapsing which is a normal chi trait. Usually is not harmful to them but can be corrected with surgery if become a problem. I was told it could be exacerbated by allergies or being overweight.

    I was told it was allergies and they can get a shot from the vet from time to time or a 1/2-1 teaspoon of childrens benadryl when its at its worse.

    Our dog goes on his 'pad' about 99% of the time. I kinda think it is psychological, but hey whatever works. I will not change.

Our little guy is very well potty trained (for a long haired Chi, I think). Now, is it tooo much that we reward him for doing his NUMBER2 on the puppy pad? I think, hey better to spoil so he keeps on doing it on the pad than not to. Very seldom will he pee or otherwise on something other than the puppy pad.

    Whatever works - keep doing it.  I'd reward him too.
  • Jim - 2012-08-30
    Every now and then he will miss the pad BUT it's not like he's not trying. Still in my mind he'll be a PUPPY for a while and this will take time and we are patient.

My long haired chi is housebroken as long as she is in the part of the housee we mainly stay in. If we allow her to go in the other part she goes to the bathroom even if she has just been out. We would like for her to have full run of the house, but so far it is impossible she is about 2 years old and we have had her for about 4 months. any suggestions?

    People swear those wee wee pads really work.  Is there a place in the other area of the home that you canplace one or put one in a litter box.  One thought.  Another thought is if you walk her - to put a leash where you are in the other part of the home.  Best all around is to watch her or crate her whenyou are in the other part of the house and prevent her from going in that part.  Soon as she even looks like she has to go - grab and get her outside.

I received an applehead chihuahua for my birthday July 3 from my husband and son. Her name is Molly. She is only 4 months. She is white and brown with a black spot on her back and around the left side of her tail. Training her to pee and poop on the training pad was not as hard as I thought it would be. I can let her loose the house and have noticed she will go to the utility room where her training pad is and pee or poop.  I am so proud of her.

I had a Westie for 16 years. Her name was Minnie (aka Minnie pearl). She was one of the loves of my life. My best friend. She was kind and loving and gave me so much joy. Her life gave so much to me, I think of my baby every day and wonder if she knows how much i will forever miss her. They are wonderful dogs human like. I now have a cockapoo who I love with all my heart but my Minnie will always be one of my most loved friends i have ever had. Rest in peace my minnie pearl and know your mommy loves you.
