prevent your chihuahua from overheating with these summer safety tips!

It’s summer and the heat has arrived!  Chihuahuas are small animals that love the sunshine and come from a hot environment, but they’re still prone to overheating and temperature sensitivity.  Here are some tips for keeping your Chihuahua cool during these hot summer days.

vehicles.  many chihuahua owners take their dogs everywhere.  If you do this, make sure your dog can go with you wherever you take her.  In the summer heat, a Chihuahua (as well as children and other animals) can develop health problems in a matter of minutes.

water.  Always bring water with you and a way for your Chihuahua to drink it.  try teaching your dog how to drink from a bottle of water.  You can also purchase a collapsible water bowl.

panting.  When dogs are hot, they pant.  If your Chihuahua is panting excessively with labored breath, she could be in trouble.  Get her into a cooler environment and offer her water immediately.  Foam at the mouth is another indication that it’s just too hot for your dog.

exercise.  It’s easy to exercise Chihuahuas indoors, and this may be something to consider on hot days. When heat warnings are in effect, you and your dog should spend most time indoors.  Try a light game of fetch inside with your chihuahua’s favorite toy.

helpful chihuahua information and facts chihuahua owners should know!

the chihuahua, with its apple-dome skull and large luminous eyes, can wear a remarkably human expression at times

the chihuahua, with its apple-dome skull and large luminous eyes, can wear a remarkably human expression at times; she or he will want to be with you most, if not all of the time.

warning: don’t buy a chihuahua if you don’t have the emotional real estate in your heart or the time for the complete love and attention of this furry little pet.  they are like children.

chihuahuas can be smooth coat or long coat. apple head or dear head, there is no chihuahua breed standard distinction made between the two in the united states, since in the states, both smooth coat and long coat can occur in a litter. experienced chihuahua owners say that each dog of this breed has their own unique personality; this is a very individualistic breed.

a few generalizations can be made. chihuahuas are graceful, energetic, and swift-moving canines.  They have often been described as having “terrier-like” qualities; that is, the qualities of being alert, observant, and keen on interacting with their masters. they are extremely loyal and get attached to one or two persons.

these tiny and sometimes teacup size dogs are certainly unaware of their diminutive stature: they can be bold with other dogs much larger than themselves, and protective of their masters. They are fiercely loyal to their masters and wary of any strangers or new guests introduced into the household, which the Chihuahua considers to be its personal domain. For these reasons, Chihuahuas make good watch dogs (not guard dogs!).

the Chihuahua needs a great deal of human contact: touching, petting, and general attention. If the Chihuahua does not get this, she or he will use various attention-getting tricks until you give her/him attention. Like using paws to lightly scratch the hand, a signal that says, “Pet me now!” Some owners who have had other, more independent breeds may find the chihuahua too needy. However, they give a lot of love and affection in return for your care.

keeping more than one Chihuahua can greatly ease the dog’s stress when left alone each day if the owner works. They will compete for your attention when you get home though. Because they are by nature gentle, loyal, and sweet-tempered, Chihuahuas are ideal for single people, the elderly, the handicapped, and shut-ins.

Chihuahuas will keep you company for hours by lying on your lap or beside your torso if in bed, and treat you like royalty. No one with a Chihuahua in their household will ever be truly alone. They are quite happy in apartments, as long as there is enough to play with and explore.

opinions differ on how to bathe a chihuahua. some say that bathing too often removes the natural oils from the coat, and thus dandruff will result and the coat will look dull. Others say that shampooing on occasion with certain brands of shampoo can actually enhance the sheen of the coat. Chihuahuas should be bathed at least twice a month, otherwise they develop an unpleasant smell. This is actually due to the skin cells that humans sloth off onto the Chihuahua! So humans are the main contributors to that smell that can develop.

When bathing, take care not to get water into their ears, as an infection can develop. You will need to trim their nails at least once a month too. On the smaller dogs, cat claw trimmers can be used. It’s good to start a nail trimming routine early on so that your dog becomes accustomed to your handling its paws not to mention getting used to the clippers. Owners should also be aware that chihuahuas are prone to knee problems like luxating patellas or “weak knees.” This can occur as they get older. If it causes difficulty in walking, take your dog to the vet.
