Summary "Because the typical Chihuahua is fiercely loyal to its master, this little dog doesn't always get along well with strangers or children. Prospective owners of Chihuahuas are generally advised to include socialization methods in the dog's training when it is very young. This book, a title in Barron's Training Your Dog series, presents breed-specific advice to dog owners. The emphasis is on dog-friendly methods for teaching skills and preventing or correcting bad habits. Virtually every aspect of canine training is covered, including house training, teaching obedience to verbal cues and hand signals, retrieving, walking the dog on a leash, and more. Instructive color photos appear on most pages"-- Provided by publisher.
