The strong-minded dogs that are chihuahuas like to do their own thing. They can earn a reputation for being hard to train by being stubborn.
How long does it take to train a Chihuahua puppy?
The answer to this question depends on the house-training process. Most chihuahua pups can be trained in three to four weeks. Allow them some time to strengthen their bladder and bowel muscles. The more time you give, the stronger they will become. If you are not sure how to house train your dog, ask your veterinarian for advice.
Do Chihuahuas get angry easily?
If you don’t take the time to train and socialize them properly, or teach them which behaviors are okay and which aren’t, they can develop aggressive personality, which is why chihuahuas are not angry dogs by nature.
Can Chihuahuas stay home alone?
If the environment is warm and safe, a healthy chihuahua can be left alone for up to a year. However, if you are planning to take your dog out of the house for extended periods of time, it is important to make sure that the dog is well-fed and hydrated, and that he or she has access to fresh air and fresh water.
Do Chihuahuas pick one person?
For all their sass, most Chihuahuas enjoy an abundance of lap time and do not enjoy spending too much time outdoors. They are widely known to gravitate toward one person and reject new people, but that may be because dogs are more inclined to socialize with other dogs than with humans.
Some of the traits that make a dog a good family dog include: the ability to work with children and other small animals, such as rabbits, birds, and small rodents; the willingness to be trained to do tricks; and a high level of obedience training. Some of these traits are inherited and some are learned.
A dog with these qualities is more likely to live a long, healthy life and may have a longer life expectancy than one without such qualities. Some people have said that a well-behaved dog is the best thing that ever happened to a child. This is not always the case, however, as some dogs can be very difficult to train, especially when it comes to children.
How many times a day do Chihuahuas poop?

Chihuahuas will and do cry, and Chihuahua puppies are particularly known as big criers. When they want your attention, to be fed, or to be let out for a pee, crying will happen.

Chihuahuas are loyal, friendly and good family pets when treated respectfully. They can get all the exercise they need in the house, but they also need to be socialized with other dogs and cats.

How often should a Chihuahua eat?
We recommend you feed an adult chihuahua three times a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner. They can keep their energy up with some snacks in between meals. Puppies under 3 months will require up to 3-6 separate meals per day due to the amount of food they need to eat.
Puppies under 6 months of age should only be fed a small amount at a time. If you are feeding a puppy a large amount, it may be best to feed them a smaller portion of the same food each day. This will allow the puppy to get used to eating smaller portions, which will help them to gain weight faster.
