Overview


Mexico’s most famous purebred dog, the Chihuahua enjoys the unique distinction of the being the world’s tiniest dog—as small as 1 pound at his full adult size. The Chihuahua today enjoys international fame and is prized as a companion on every continent. In addition to being a superb, loving pet, the Chihuahua excels as a show dog, competition dog, and therapy dog. For his few inches, the Chi proves versatile and multi-talented. Readers will enjoy author Barbara J. Andrew’s insightful history of the Chihuahua, examining the possible theories of the breed’s origins (Asia, Mexico, England or America?), the development of breed type, and emergence of two coat types (long and smooth). The chapter on the breed’s characteristics discusses the benefits and possible challenges of owning such a tiny dog, the need for socialization and training to develop a well-adjusted adult dog, and a few health concerns that new owners should be aware of. Few breeds are as rewarding to own as the Chihuahua, and this Comprehensive Owner’s Guide effectively encapsulates what makes the Chi such an endearing companion dog.

New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a reputable breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are illustrated with photographs of handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 full-color photographs in this useful and reliable volume. The author’s advice on obedience training will help the reader better mold and train into the most well-mannered dog in the neighborhood. The extensive and lavishly illustrated chapter on healthcare provides up-to-date detailed information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, preventing and dealing with parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as historical dogs, breeders, or kennels, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and parasite control. Fully indexed.
