They love to work for me

My secret to fun little chi's is socialize, socialize, socialize. I have 3 chi's and they are friendly to all, love kids and are not "1 person" dogs. I take them everywhere I can, especially where there are children because I have 9 grandchildren so being snappy is not an option. They are great watch dogs, but learned to stop barking on command with the aid of a pop can with a few pennies inside. I would shake it at them and tell them "no barking". Then when they stopped I praised and gave them a treat. It only took a couple of times and they would stop barking on command. They are bright and seem to learn quickly. My oldest chi has 2 obedience titles, and works well off leash. It creates a great bond to work with your chi and you will have a great socially acceptable dog that you can be proud to take anywhere.

Thanks so much for the great information. I'd love to see some pictures of your Chi's sometimes. Let your grandchildren know that I should have a Chihuahua coloring page post out with 6/7 pages of pictures to color within the next week. Hope you like them!
