    They aren't suppose to need as much excercise as larger dogs. As you say, she's healthy and happy, so it sounds like she's getting what she needs:)

I recently bought a japanese chin and he does well until he gets really tired then if you touch him he goes crazy and bites and growls at you. But that is the only time he is usually really calm and quiet. Does anyone know why?

    Many companion pets have similar traits.  They are 1000% fine but if they are tired or sleeping and you disrupt them, they can get a little ticked off.  Many humans have this trait as well.  I don't think it is that your puppy is overly agressive - just that it wants to sleep or rest.

Our little guy is 4mos. old/4.5lbs and is chewing on the baseboards in the kitchen. THIS is our only problem. He is taken outside to play almost every day and is put to sleep at about 11pm and sometimes does not wake until about 8am.
Is there anything(food wise) we should keep him from eating?

    How can we NOT spoil this cute little guy(Jay) even if he is bad every now and then?

    Your dog needs toys and more toys. I get my dog a new toy every 2-3 weeks and then after you get a bunch of toys rotate some in and out so the dog is always mentally stimulated
  • Babbs Coady - 2012-06-01
    Just a few odd ideas, try getting the dog a proper teething bone for one and at the same time wash the baseboards in something that will be safe but bad smelling and tasting to the dog (like people, dogs differ in what they may or may not like the taste and smell of.) I found this worked for many of the dogs and cats I've had over the years.

    Our dog has plenty of toys. This was about 2-3mos. ago and he does not do it anymore BUT does bite/chew on plastic chairs outside and wooden legs inside every now and then. One thing I have found and that is the rubber colored ring on a Target prescription bottle(large size) our dog LOVES to chew on. I DO monitor this as one he almost swollowed a couple months ago as he chewed a piece off.

    I once had a small mixed breed that used to chew on the furniture. Our vet said that she had a vitamin deficiency and put her on a canine multi vitamin. the chewing stopped. Hope this helps
  • jim - 2012-08-30
    Our dog has his own favorite toys and others that I have made. I always supervise his chewing on toys, bones and other things. One of his favorite toys is a teething toy for babies. He'll knaw on that all day. I've had to take off a couple of parts that he got lose and started chewing on. Little buger.

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.

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. 
  • SAM - 2012-08-01
    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.
  • taylordane - 2012-08-14
    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.
