Chihuahuas are known as the smallest dogs in the entire world. They come in many different colors and 2 types of hairstyles. There are short-haired and long-haired Chihuahuas. But this article will focus on the latter as it is less well known than their short-lived counterparts.

You can confuse long-haired Chihuahuas with Pomeranians because they are similar. Most people are fascinated by the appearance of this group of Chihuahuas because of their smooth and long coats, heads in the shape of an apple, large eyes and pointed, tattered ears. They simply look cute and are perfect to have as a pet.

The long-haired Chihuahuas have a soft yet smooth physical appearance due to their hair, which made them a favorite among some Chihuahua fans. The best thing about it is that their long hair requires very little maintenance. You do not need to trim the coat. It takes about two years to grow completely and it needs much less care.

Of course, this type of Chihuahua sheds hair, but not as much as the short-haired group. In addition, long-haired Chihuahuas are more prone to diseases or diseases related to the respiratory tract due to their unique property of having a long coat. What you can do to prevent your pet from getting an illness is always to clean your house or the place where they usually stay. You should vacuum regularly to make your place dust free and be diligent in picking up shed hair from beds or sofas. The key is to clean and vacuum your house regularly.

Chihuahuas are considered canine dog breeds. Chihuahuas can survive in hot temperatures, but not in very cold places. They need this kind of environment to live comfortably. They like to stay indoors rather than play outside, especially long-haired Chihuahuas. This group loves to play with small toys inside the house and loves to sleep in a warm, cozy and comfortable place. They are very cute, especially when they sneak up on you. But be very careful, as Chihuahuas are very small, they can be covered with blankets while you sleep, and you can roll on them, which can cause serious problems or even death to the dog.

Like their short-haired counterparts, long-haired Chihuahuas are loyal to their family. But when it comes to other people, they are not so friendly and sociable. They can also interact well with other Chihuahuas, but not with other dog breeds. They can become aggressive when accompanied by an unknown dog of another breed. It is also not advisable to give Chihuahuas to young children as pets as they are very small and fragile and delicate to handle. Children can crush their bones or injure them without meaning.

Moreover, Chihuahuas with this hairstyle are very smart and they learn fast. However, they can be stubborn at times, making them difficult to train. The secret to training Chihuahuas is to always give them positive reinforcement, especially when they are doing something right or right. You should always be patient and diligent when it comes to taking care of all your pets, not just Chihuahuas.
