Another comment.......our dog(after been given a treat 'sometimes') will go and want to hide.bury it. It's only frustrating when he scratches on the carpet. You kinda feel for these animals because I guess it's instinct. This is the first time I have had a dog that does this. As a boy we grew up with Boxers and the 2 we had did not do this. Is there anything I can do indoors? Outside he does not dig, just munches on bunny turds, eats bark off of little limbs, loves dead leaves. OH and got him a KONG and he will not eat from his bowl ONLY from his KONG.

    How old and how long have you had the dog?
  • Jim - 2012-12-20
    He's 11mos. old, will be 1yr.old the beginning of Jan.
  • Jim - 2012-12-20
    We got him when he was 4 weeks old.

    They are small and often nervous dogs.  He may have come from a place where he  was not comfortable and may have felt he had to hide his stuff to keep it.  With patience and love he will become comfortable and more then likely calm down.  Try putting something special in his bowl.

    We've had him since he was 4wks old.

    My female chi started hiding things when she was 6 months old. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old. This must be a natural dog instinct because I have 3 cousins who also own chi's and their dogs also hide their toys, bones etc. My chi also scratches at her bedding like she is trying to dig. I have had her outside and she began digging a hole like a hound dog, but she is a full blooded registered chi. Must be normal behavior for her. I certainly won't be leaving her alone in the yard to dig holes.

    Last year I rescued a long haired chi mix who is about 5. She does the exact same things...no digging outside except when she finds delicious cat turds (she is a most effective scavenger hunter), loves clumps of dead leaves, digs a bit in the house before she lays down in her bed, and when I give her a big treat meant to occupy her with chewing she will pace around the house whining until she finds a satisfactory place to hide it, usually in the linen closet. My solution was to stop giving her such large chew treats. Now she only gets bite sized things which she eats right away. I felt too sorry for her when she seemed in distress looking for a hiding place.

    Well, I had a doggy, long hair chihuahua, that used to get everything under ground and was afraid of everybody. I took him over to the Psychologist and he advised me to take him over to the graveyard for few nights and to leave him there all night long by himself. Well, I did so but when he came back home we found out that something was killing the cats in the community. It was weird because the cats showed up dead with two holes on their necks and by the time we realized what was happening I fould out that I have been bit by the leg while I was sleeping. I had two holes on my right leg. Then one day I went back to my room and I found my long hair chihuahua sucking blood from a rabbit that I had in the room. The rabbit was already dead. Well, I decided to end the problem and what I did was to remove the two fangs and I tough him how to drink tomatoe juice. Now I have no problems with Draky.

This is my Maltipoo . Her name is Sasha, she is now 1 year old this picture was taken when she was 3 months old. I really love designer puppies. They are always the best of the two breeds, in my case Maltese and French Poodle.

    The picture above actually is a Shih Tzu, which is a very old dog breed, and not one of the recent designer dogs. The photo was taken in 2006 at the 'Family Pet Show' in Pomona, California. But I bet I your designer dog is really cute, being a cross between two such adorable dogs as the Maltese and French Poodle!

I also have a long haired Chihuahua. she is blonde and white and they are smart dogs. She is very obedience and understand a lot of things you tell her. The thing I want to know is there something to make her hair grow because she got a few fleas and from scratching she has some bold spots and also sleeps with me. They are very protective.

Our long-hair chihuahua is almost two years old and such a sweetheart. She gets along great with our relatives' small dogs and at home with our 13 year old cat. Its so cute to watch the cat and dog play tag around the house (although the chihuahua knows the cat is the alpha pet). She still has potty-training accidents during bad weather, but otherwise is very behaved. Unlike most of her breed, she rarely barks and rather lick people then bite/growl. Chihuahua's have a very bad rap for being yappy and ill-tempered dogs but not all of them act that way.

    i have a 1 year old long haired chi and she is the sweetest dog. She also never ever barks and loves to lick people. I thought my Peanut ( that's her name cause she is only 3 lbs) only did that. As far as potty training goes, she is too little to go outside in the snow so I have placed a small pan with a piddle pad in it in the corner of my bathroom and she goes in there. She also goes outside when its nice out, but I found this to work great for chi's that are so small.

    Is he cute?
  • Maryanne Porter - 2013-02-09
    I have 2 long hair chihuahuas and they are so wonderful. I was given the first one from my daughter and he was so shy and scared of everyone and everything. He was 2 now he is about 7 and so happy, he is awesome to watch run he looks so proud. He does still have a bit of an attitude, always afraid of others around his food but just growls and complains. My little girl is almost 3 and so different I had her from about 2 months. She is happy and very friendly but barks because the male does when someone comes around. But she always wants to greet people and get some attention. I love this breed they are so cute and stuck to me like glue.

    I would suggest you check with your breeder. Possibly it didn't demonstrate enough of the show qualities of a perfect Pekingese, so was sold as a pet. That could account for some of the variability in its traits.

I have always had chihuahuas.It started with my husband giving me one for a wedding gift,and I have had one every since. We have been married 38 years. They are like having extra children .All our kids are grown and out on their on, so our dogs are a real comfort . We now have a short hair white male,and a long hair black & tan female, who we mated, and now have a short hair chocolate female. They all three have their own personality. The daddy is smart, serious,and at times can be an ankle biter. The mom, is so sweet, very curious (which can be dangerous at time) and very playful. The baby, oh my goodness , she is the cutest thing, and she knows it.playful, smart,and dose not know she is a dog.She thinks she is a baby human .They all love both me and my husband, but they all three have a special connection with me . If you are thinking about getting a dog , I highly suggest a chihuahua, but only if you have time to be with them, because they need a lot of attention . Goog luck, and God bless.

Small dogs take longer to house train. As soon as you catch the dog relieving himself inside, tell him 'No' in a stern voice...don't yell at him, then take him outside. It may take a little while but patience goes a long way. Never hit the dog or put their 'nose' in it. How would you like someone sticking your face in the toilet?? Then punching you in the face? Think about it. If you are doing this to your pet, then dont have one! God forbid one of your kids slip up!!

    We were 'VERY FORTUNATE.' Our Jay was kinda 'house broken' when he was given to us (6 weeks old). After reading about other dogs like this we are very 'BLESSED.' We use a puppy pad and praise him every time he does his job. Every now and then he will miss the pad but hey he's only a puppy and at least he does not go where ever he wants/when ever he wants. Speaking of that he will sleep from 11pm until 8-8:30-9am without getting up to go. Well since we have had him he has gotten up maybe 10 times before he has woken up.

    Our little long-haired Chi is 3 1/2 mos. old and weights 1.5 lbs. We decided, when we got her to break her to a potty pad. It is placed inside a small cage (with the door open). So she does not 'miss' the pad. We change the pad 3 or 5 times a day and she has taken to it like a miracle. For a very small dog (such as ours is) I would certainly recommend this potty-training method!
