The Chihuahua is bred in both smoothcoat and longcoat varieties, but because of their tiny size, both present special challenges in keeping them healthy and happy. This handbook discusses both varieties with advice on purchase, health care, feeding, training, grooming, and more. Titles in Barron's popular series of Pet Handbooks present comprehensive information and helpful advice from breeders, veterinarians, and other pet experts. These photo-illustrated books instruct on housing, feeding, health care, and where applicable, grooming and training. Barron's Pet Handbooks resemble Barron's alternate series, the Complete Pet Owner's Manuals, but the Handbooks have a larger page count and contain more detailed information, advice, and instruction. Color photos throughout.
