Chihuahua Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 5/1/2006
We are thinking about breeding chihuahuas, but are worried about the fact that we may not be able to keep our house clean. I have friends that have multiple dogs in their house and it has a very strong odor. Do you have any suggestions about what to do or use to stay clean?

5/2/06 It depends on how faithful you are to changing their pads. We have two and three playpens in our living room with litters of 3-5 in each playpen. We change the piddle pads with each new ordor. They never seem to go all at the same time. But we keep incense sticks burning in the room when seems to correct the problem. Quick changing of the pads eliminates the problem Also keeping a candle burning helps but nothing like the incense. Belinda
5/3/06 To be honest, if your worried abotu a clean house and smells I will tell you now once you get more then one or two dogs your going to have problems. I have 19 chihuahuas and even though I run a carpet washing machine with bleach water once a week and change my puppy pads daily, and use bottles of fabreeze...we still do get smells, it's the nature of the beast. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. If your a person who can't handle smells and untidiness....then save yourself now and don't get into breeding. Alexis & Steve
