“One of the few books I have read that is clear and straight to the point about Chihuahuas. Talking from experience, Chihuahuas can be a high maintenance breed and often stubborn to train (they are also the most loving breed) and this book is exactly what was needed out there. Great book” Emma Robertson, Chihuahua owner
Easily one of the most recognizable dogs in the world, Chihuahuas are easy to identify. If you ask someone what they think of Chihuahuas, you are almost certain to get a strong reaction either in favor of them or against them. They can be an incredibly polarizing breed.
One thing that most people agree on about Chihuahuas is that they don’t appear to understand just how small they are. Most Chihuahuas don’t exhibit much (or any fear), going up and barking at a Great Dane or Mastiff. It’s impossible not to shake your head at their antics.
This guide will walk you through the in’s and out’s of owning this phenomenal breed. Whether you’re someone playing with the idea of getting a Chihuahua, or have already embarked on your journey with your pup, this guide will offer an insight into how to create a happy and fulfilling life for you and your Chi. This book will answer all your questions such as:
- Is a Chihuahua the right dog for me?
- I brought my Chihuahua home. What now?
- How can I best train my Chihuahua?
- What are some common mistakes should I avoid?
They can be difficult to train, and their personalities tend to match their parents’ personalities. But with early socialization, they can make fantastic additions to any family.

- Mischievous Charmers – the Defining Characteristics

Given their small size, Chihuahuas are a surprisingly entertaining dog – largely because they don’t realize just how small they are. They tend to be wary of strangers, but when it comes to their family, they are one of the most loyal breeds. They love their families and want to protect them just as much as any large breed.
Chihuahuas are not for everyone, but if you bring one into your home, you will have a dog that will love you unconditionally.
