my puff is very nervous and spiddles' when putting her on the leash to go outside..... she does stay with me outside until she gets a spazze attack and runs around the house like crazy but always goes right to the front door when done.... i have to have her on a leash in case there are dogs out running around. inside the house she won't be trained if i tell her to come here even using a baby voice or treat she hides. training like teaching her stuff she acts nervous and shakes and is way to eager to just eat the treat i am very good at training my pets even my cats but she just doesn't seem to comprehend what to do and is like scared i got her when you was 7 months old and i know the people that i got her from so i know she wasn't abused. what can i do to calm her and train her? i know that they are good dogs to teach special kinds of tricks with would be nice to see some of them. thanks

My puff has horrific allergies I can't seem to control. I just read today wool may be an issue so when I get home I will eliminate that too. She is on dry natural food made from sweet potatoes and fish and only drinks distiller water. I put natural oil in her food to prevent dry skin. We wash all clothing and bedding in detergent for sensitive skin and her as well (puppy shampoo). And still issues! Itching all day and night to the point none of us sleep! Help! I can't afford a couple hundred dollars for a test right now, well not before I try all my options! Hope someone out here in cyber world can help poor little Dixie Bell!

    I have been told by a vet that Benedryl works which sorta makes sense as the test things on dogs. However, I don't know the dosage at all for the dog. Can you just call your vet and ask?

    just adopted zoe, sweetie pup w/the most awful oozing skin. We started with grain free limited diet, and then cooked foods. For baths, started using vet pyoben shampoo with a light buf-puf, it dried everything up, including the healthy skin, started another regimen (all natural homeopathic with the exception of vet's shampoo) right after bath-with a paper towel and sensitive type of witch hazel gently wipe all the skin down, then a light spray made of purified water with drops of tea tree and lavender oil, then finish with calendula cream or gel. she loves this treatment! Took 6 weeks or better to clear it up, and then she eyed me eating the croissant and couldn't help myself but to share, ugh..2 bites and 2 days later back to square 1! Shes Gluten Intolerant! I now cook her food and add it to the royal canin because she wont eat that alone, give them choice they become picky children :) Good luck with your pup! Good luck wit your pup,

I have a Long Hair Apple Head Blue Coat Chihuahua. We got her at 5 months; she had to have heart surgery. Doing Great Now. Has problems with her left knee, holding off on surgery as long as I possibly can. She LOVES people, loves kids, hesitant about toddlers as they try to chase her. She does not like other dogs, just one she grew up with. Went through all PetSmart class and is a Certified Service Dog.

WOW! How wonderful is my Noots. He is a apple head chawawa. After reading your reading the information on feeding him... I must change his food. I wondered why he was getting so fat so quickly. He is only 1 year old. Ceasars dog food is NOT good for him. So....Noots is only getting brown rice and a little chicken from now on. I wonder how to get rid of the dark half moon developing under his eyes....it seems crusty?

I have been best friends with an Applehead Chi for almost 10 years now. I have never had such a smart and loving dog. He is a joy to come home to....always. :-)

When I got Bonnie, she was in bad shape. She had apparently been given to some children who were not supervised, then thrown away when she bit one. By the time I got her she was dirty, flea infested and frightened of everybody. Now, a year and a half later, she is perky, plays constantly with her best friend, Hero (a Manx cat) and challenges all comers to a duel, then loves them to death. The Vet thought she was mixed Long Haired Chihuahua and perhaps Papillion, but I have doubts. I think she is just a LHC - beautiful, smart and so loving. I am the luckiest doggie mommie alive.

I have a 3 1/2 month old blue apple head chihuahua. Her name is Maggie and she is awesome. We are still working on potty training, does anyone have any good potty training tips?

    My daughter has a 2 1/2 pound mixed pup and she swears by the wee wee pads.  I have always had good luck with hanging the leash on the door knob.  When the pup has to go to the potty, they would play with the leash.  People say remove water and food after 8.  If they look like they are looking for  place to go - get them out quickly.  1/2 hour after eating and when they wake up.  All will work out - but sure takes patience.

    I HAAATE the wee wee pads. That teaches them to go inside. Its also a sure sign of someone who is too lazy to do the work of taking them out regularly when you're traing them. Small dogs are quick learners and they don't usually like to go anywhere near their home. That's why they usually like to go into a neighbors yard. there's my 2 cents. dave
