How to stop a klepto dog

My dog is a kleptomaniac. Anything left in his reach he will steal and chew on and hide. Paper goods, remote controls, anything. He's a freaking 5 lb Chihuahua but nothing is safe if he can reach it or climb to it. After 3 years of being terrorized by his ways I'm wondering if there's any training that can make it so we can trust him to have free reign of the house. [more inside]

What are the best things about owning a Chihuahua?

I'm writing a story where one of the kids gets a Chihuahua. I've never owned a dog (my husband is allergic). If you have a Chihuahua, what is it that you love about them?

Chihuahua Puppy Guides?

In the wake of a recent hoarding incident in Pennsylvania a local shelter has a large number of chihuahuas who will soon be needing permanent homes. I have previous experience dogsitting a family member's chihuahua for long periods of time so I know how to take care of adults, but some puppies are also available for adoption and I think that might be a rewarding experience. Everyone in the household has experience with dogs, but we have not raised a puppy. I was wondering if you could link me to the best guides for what to expect and how to raise a puppy, and specifically for the unique challenges of a chihuahua puppy. [more inside]

I don't even like small dogs.

After a long assault from my SO of horrible puppy pics of things with short legs, smashed faces, or freakishly long bodies, I agreed to this. Which is a 9 week old chihuahua. He joins these two as the four legged contigent of a family that also has two boy child types. So now I need to feed all of them. [more inside]

My Spanish is not up to the task

Where, exactly, in Chihuahua do you catch the bus to Santa Eulalia? We were told it was the Francisco Portilla bus and could be caught on Ave. Ninos Heroes. We´ve waited for literally hours and not seen it.

First-time travellers to Mexico need some advice.

We will be in the city of Chihuahua (or roundabouts) for Dias de los Muertos. We're wondering if the festivities will be better in the city, or if there is a smaller town within an hour or two's travel that would be better? Beyond that, are there any don't-miss sights, experiences, or eateries you'd care to recommend?

Chihuahua Outdoors Pee-pee Poo Poo Partay

Previously paper-trained Chihuahua, now on the path to being house broken will very very occasionally do her business outside. If let out from her crate, she may go to the bathroom in the house, however, for some reason, she prefers to go to the bathroom in her crate (just number one)! Outside she will just stand around our feet, looking to be picked up or just looking up at us. Her Chihuahua friend, similar history with paper training, will do her business in a mater of seconds on the lawn…she learnt this in a couple of days. What are we doing wrong with the stubborn one??? I don’t want her to be in a crate every time we have to leave the room. All I want for her to understand is that when Chihuahua goes outside, does the business, Chihuahua can quickly go inside … When she does go to the bathroom outside she is rewarded, but as mentioned, this is not often… Any hints? Any Chihuahua specific pointers? Thanks
