Anyone that knows or has a Chihuahua or two is aware of how they shake and tremble all the time, giving the excuses that the dog is either scared or chilly. Some dogs tend to shake more than others and for various reasons. Others may not tremble at all, although this seems to be one of the Chihuahua’s outstanding traits. When it comes to caring for your Chihuahua in cold, winter climates, contact your local Rockford-area Petsmart or Petco as listed below or one closest to your home for some necessities to help your little guy through the frigid months.
Many Chihuahuas are either paper trained or litter box trained to make it easier when it comes to relieving itself when weather is not cooperative. However, it does not mean that your little dog cannot withstand the cold temperatures if done properly. Speaking as a Chihuahua owner for many of these little bundles of fur and living in the Midwest, you can prepare yourself and your pup for the cold and snow.
- When it snows, you may have to always keep a shoveled path for your small dog. If necessary to use salt, be sure to use the type that is safe for your dog’s paws and pads.
- Provide a sweater or coat to protect your little dog. Boots can be difficult because their paws are so tiny but not necessary. Be sure to monitor your dog and bring him/her in as soon as your pet is relieved.
- Take your dog out often for short periods.
The Chihuahua is small but mighty in nature so as long as you prepare him/her for the elements, you pup will learn to go out, do its duty and come back in. This dog does not favor the cold and snow like some of its larger, furry relatives but the Chihuahua is definitely brave enough to go out and take care of business in style!
