The coat of this canine will depend on which parent genes were inherited. The longer coat of the Chihuahua will require regular brushing to prevent shedding and matting. If the coat is short or hairless, wiping him with a soft damp cloth will be helpful. Small dogs like this hybrid require special attention to dental hygiene.

Ideal Environment

Regular play and walks is important for the Chi-Chi. A home where someone can stay with him as he likes to be near his family. Early socialization will be helpful especially if he takes on the character of the Chihuahua. If you live in a cold climate, a coat will be needed to keep him warm.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
