Travelling With a Chihuahua - What to Take Note
Your precious Chihuahua will be off to where ever you go, and you will have peace of mind knowing that this toy
dog is trained for traveling. Training your dog should include training for when you travel.
Most people travel with their small animals, and it is not uncommon to see people and their pets going
everywhere that someone without a dog goes.
In fact almost everywhere you go is pet friendly. So if you are travelling with
a pet Chihuahua, there are some things that will need consideration.
Chihuahua Manners And How They Socialize
The Chihuahuas are a one person dog and they can become very possessive if not handled correctly. They are not
good around children and will sometimes attack if they are being provoked. Chihuahuas only socialize with
their own kind; they do not care too much for other dogs, as they feel they are superior.
They love the stimulation of traveling and are very much aware of their surroundings. The training for travel
will require a lot of patience and determination on your part. The dog loves praise and rewards so have plenty on
hand when working with your Chihuahua.
Traveling and Crate Training
The easiest and safest way to travel with a Chihuahua is to carry him in a crate. If traveling on the airlines,
this will be a requirement if you are going to take him on board with you. Another venue would be driving to your
Again, crating is the safest place for the dog, you do not want him roaming openly through the car while you are
driving. This can dangerous to both the driver and the dog, especially if you had to slam on the brakes.
Although many hotels and resorts are dog friendly, they frown on dogs running loose and some even require that a
crate be available.
One of the basic lessons that a Chihuahua has to learn is to be social. This really is training since these toy
dogs are possessive of their master and without some sort of socialization skills they can become aggressive. Daily
walks are a great way to have your dog gets use to people and other dogs.
When walking, stop and talk to people and let other people talk to your dog and pet him if desirable. The other
travelling manners are that they obey your commands. The basic dog commands such as sit, down, come and stay will
make the trip so much easier on both of you.
Travelling with a Chihuahua can be very rewarding for both the dog and you, and having the well-mannered dog
will give you incentive to do it over and over again. Let people know that you have a dog while you are traveling
so that there are no surprises or accidents. For example, if you are staying in a dog friendly hotel and you
want to grab a bite to eat, just crate the little guy and let the front desk know that he is there alone.
