A small but loyal dog

If there's a trait that stands out in this breed it's their size. Chihuahuas are dogs that can always travel with us in a handbag or rucksack, which is why we can find many types of clothes and accessories for them in pet shops. It's a popular breed due to its personality and adapts well in small spaces.

Remember you must be especially careful with your Chihuahua as it must be walked adequately and frequently, wearing a winter coat when needed (they have very sensitive skin) and taking it regularly to the vet. Its physical characteristics are also special, as Chihuahuas tend to have health problems if you don't give them regular veterinary attention.

The Chihuahua is a nervous and intelligent dog that searches for games and attention constantly. This is why it's a breed that tends to bark excessively and can present complicated behaviors if it's not properly socialized. Once you know its personality, you're ready to find an adequate and unique name for your chihuahua.

Tips to name a Chihuahua

To choose an adequate name for your pet we recommend you choose a name that's not excessively long or short, find one in between to make it easier for the dog to learn.

You shouldn't use common words that are in our usual vocabulary or those that we're going to use to give orders. You shouldn't use the name of another pet or person that you see frequently either, your pet could be confused.

It must be a clear and bold name that never varies (Catherine- Katie). We finally advise you to choose a name full of meaning that reminds us of a such special pet.
