On the fence about Chis, or have you decided against owning a Chihuahua because of their undeserved reputation?
Please read on......................
Everyone has heard the comments that Chis are notorious ankle biters and incessant barkers, but this simply isn't true. Any dog can drive you nuts with undesirable behaviors if not trained properly. Personalities vary with Chis as they do with anything/anyone.
Although Chis are tiny, they are still dogs and like all others, they need and benefit from gentle and consistent corrections, simple commands, and positive reinforcements. (Never hit your Chi... they are small and can be injured fairly easily. They are also very smart and will remember, which may lead to broken trust and an affected relationship between you and your dog as well as your dog and others)
This "saucy" little doggie is packed with personality, and when a Chi has something to say... he will be heard! For example, when the doorbell rings, he will alert you but the "quiet" or "enough" command can go a long way if used early and often. So, be consistent and don't start anything you don't plan on continuing.
More often than not, Chis are the perfect pet for most households whether you have limited space or acres of land.
French Bulldogs are very pricey endeavor for most families (ours included) and there are many reasons for this. Just to name a few...
Most Frenchies are delivered by cesarean section and they often need lots of support with rearing to help the pups thrive...
Most breeders invest quite a bit to bring you healthy/ quality Dams and Sires in an effort to provide quality pups...
In short, you often get what you pay for and poorly bred dogs are much more prone to issues that will cost you a lot more in the long run. We want to help you protect your investment, so we happily offer not only a contract, but a health guarantee as well.
We believe that Frenchies are worth every penny. We accept payment plans to help with the cost of these beautiful additions to your family.
Frenchies have short faces and muzzles and tend to take in extra air as the gulp food down, so YES... they do burp at times and they do pass gas even more often. They also snore and snort- so on occasion they may embarrass you in front of your company with these manners BUT they are so much fun, so smart, and entertaining that this is easily forgiven. A special bowl for slow feeding can help limit the amount of air taken in and help to lessen these attributes.
We find that crate training seems to work well with housebreaking the Frenchie. Crates are great tools, but should NOT be used to punish or leave the dog in for long periods. Especially when young and unable to hold their bladders and bowels for long periods. This is counterproductive and will only prolong the process, confuse the puppy, and make everyone involved frustrated and unhappy. Puppies have accidents and this is to be expected as they learn. Consistency is key and patience is paramount!
