3 Steps For Successful Chihuahua Puppy Training

Chihuahua puppy

1. You should use positive reinforcement - young Chihuahuas are just like babies. They feel good inside any time they “get something right”. But still - they can’t understand that they got it right, they are able to do so only if you show them and praise them for doing things in a right way.

2. You should be consistent – sometimes people forget that dogs don’t speak your language and can’t understand it the way people can. They can learn a certain command through repetition of the same command word and then the praise they get for doing what you ask. If you are inconsistent and use different command words for the same action, this will just confuse your puppy.

3. You should become the alpha leader – it’s really important to show your puppy that you are the leader and the puppy is the follower before starting training your puppy. If you don’t, it will be the other way around and you will have a lot of trouble.
