Chihuahua Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 6/20/2006
A chihuahua was given to me when he was 10 weeks. He was very sweet and then he suddenly turned vicious. He will go for my children, my husband and even me, who he adores. He doesn't act like this all of the time, but a lot of the time. I don't know what to do to change this, but I am afraid he will bite a neighbor one day. Could someone please help me with this problem, so I don't have to give him up.

8/2/06 Hi, You need to be firm and when he gets mean say NO maybe spank him to hurt him but his feelings.I have amale chi that is very mean alot but when he bites me I pop his backside and say no and now he is not nearly as bad Kristy
11/5/06 if at 10 wks old this dog is biting viciously you need to do one of a few things...have the dog fixed then give it to a chihuahua rescue so they can evaluate and retrain the dog or put it down. and dont take dogs from people who dont know what they are breeding. Alexis & Steve

12/19/06 You might try pinning him on his back until he summits to you. It sounds like he has taken over the house and is condsiders himself pack leader. You will need to figure out a way take that position back from him. Poping him on the butt in my opinion isn't the way to go with this behaviour. Good luck Vickie
