Chihuahuas have really boomed in popularity over the recent years. But now it seems like people are deciding to own one without realizing the special needs of this dog breed. Here are the top 6 mistakes made by Chihuahua owners:

* Letting Small Children Play With Them - Chihuahuas are the smallest dog breed in the world, and unfortunately it's easy for them to get seriously injured by getting stepped or pulled on. In addition, they can easily become defensive and bite out if they are provoked. You should keep your Chihuahuas away from small children at all times to avoid any potential accidents.

* Not Socializing - Chihuahuas can become aggressive if not socialized properly. You should spend some time every week taking them to social locations, such as a friends house, the park, or a pet store. This will let them become used to people more and should make them less aggressive.

* Not Exercising - We all have busy schedules, and it's easy to forget about taking your Chihuahua for walks or to play outside, but their bodies require it. Try to spend at least fifteen minutes a day letting your Chihuahua play outside, this will keep them healthy and fit, and help prevent obesity.
