Chihuhua Puppy for sale

Chihuhua Puppy for sale – The Chihuahua dog breed‘s charms include their small size, big personality, and variety in coat types and colors. They’re all dog, fully capable of competing in dog sports such as agility and obedience, and are among the top ten watchdogs recommended by experts.

Chihuahuas love nothing more than being with their people — even novice pet parents — and require a minimum of grooming and exercise. While we hope you never have to deal with serious medical issues, getting pet health insurance is a smart way to ensure you’re covered in case you need to pay for unexpected vet care or procedures.

Chihuahuas make excellent apartment dogs who’ll get along with the whole family. Just make sure any children who approach know how to play gently with a small dog.

Health

The majority of Chihuahuas are healthy little dogs, but there are some genetic issues that can affect the breed. You should choose your dog from a breeder who routinely does genetic health screenings on all breeding stock to ensure that the puppies they produce are as genetically sound as possible. Some of the issues that can possibly affect the Chihuahua include potential heart problems (patent ductus arteriosus, mitral valve disease), eye disease, and patellar luxation (loose kneecaps). Idiopathic epilepsy is also known to occur in the breed.

Recommended Health Tests From the National Breed Club:
  • Cardiac Exam
  • Ophthalmologist Evaluation
  • Patella Evaluation

Grooming

The two coat varieties of the Chihuahua have slightly different grooming needs. The smooth-coat Chihuahua will need only occasional brushing and regular baths to look dapper, while the longhaired variety should have his coat brushed at least once a week to avoid any tangles or mats. Both varieties should have their nails trimmed regularly. Good dental care is necessary and should include brushing your dog’s teeth, and the vet might also recommend treats designed as part of a tooth-care program. Check the Chihuahua’s ears regularly, and remove any excess wax or debris to avoid ear infections. 

Exercise

The Chihuahua loves to run and play and can usually get enough exercise in a very small space. Simply trotting around following their people is usually enough exercise for this happy breed. Short, slow walks will keep your dog in good weight and condition. Avoid overexerting the Chihuahua. If your dog is panting and working hard to keep up, it’s time to pick him up and carry him home. 

Training

The Chihuahua is a very alert little dog of high intelligence. He is eager to please his humans and responds well to positive training practices. Chihuahuas seem well aware of how cute they are and learn how to get their way. From the very beginning you must enforce the fact that you are in charge. Never allow your Chihuahua puppy to do anything that will be unacceptable in an adult. They can have a bit of a ‘terrier’ temperament, so a firm but gentle hand is necessary when training. They can excel in obedience training and other canine sports. 

Nutrition

A high-quality dog food appropriate to the dog’s age (puppy, adult, or senior) will have all the nutrients the breed needs. Some Chihuahuas are prone to getting overweight, so watch your dog’s calorie consumption and weight level. Treats can be an important aid in training, but giving too many can cause obesity. Give table scraps sparingly, if at all, especially avoiding cooked bones and foods with high fat content. Learn about which human foods are safe for dogs, and which are not. Check with your vet if you have any concerns about your dog’s weight or diet.

What our clients say about us …….

I bought a Chocolate Lab through Unique Puppy Center and could not be more pleased. I was kept informed on the entire process of having my puppy delivered right to my front door. It was nice to receive a "care" package prior to the puppy. Any questions I had were quickly answered. The integrity of Unique Puppy Center is tremendous. They pulled from the sale the original puppy I picked out due to a health issue that they became aware of. I highly recommend uniquepuppycenter.com
