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.
Because the typical Chihuahua is fiercely loyal to its master, this little dog doesn't always get along well with strangers or children. Prospective owners of Chihuahuas are generally advised to include socialization methods in the dog's training when it is very young. This book, a title in Barron's Training Your Dog series, presents breed-specific advice to dog owners. The emphasis is on dog-friendly methods for teaching skills and preventing or correcting bad habits. Virtually every aspect of canine training is covered, including house training, teaching obedience to verbal cues and hand signals, retrieving, walking the dog on a leash, and more. Instructive color photos appear on most pages.
Chihuahuas are no longer found just on the arms of celebrities and in television commercials; the entire country has fallen in love with their loving nature and loyalty! Whether you're looking for a Chihuahua of your own or already own one, The Everything Chihuahua Book is your definitive guide to all aspects of Chihuahua ownership.
Authored by renowned pet writer Joan Hustace Walker, this all-inclusive book takes you through the puppy stage up to the older Chihuahua - and everything in between! Highlights include:
The best places to find healthy puppies
Teaching effective discipline and housetraining
Maintaining proper nutrition and care
Essentials tips on traveling safely with your Chihuahua

"I am Pepe. But you can call me el Jefe."
Pepe may have soft white fur, big brown eyes, and mucho attitude--but he's no furry fashion fad. Pepe can talk--even if his new owner, Geri Sullivan, seems to be the only person who can understand him.
When Geri takes on her first assignment for a quirky investigator named Jimmy G and stumbles over a Seattle millionaire's corpse, Pepe proves to be worth his weight in liver treats. Suspicion falls on the not-so-grieving widow, who wants to finance a reality TV show, Dancing With Dogs.
Normally, Pepe wouldn't be caught muerte in a sparkly costume. However, he has to sniff out the real killer and keep Geri safe. Lesser dogs might flinch. But Pepe isn't the kind to turn tail and run. . .

"Readers will sit up and beg for more." --Sushi the Shih Tzu, canine star of the Trash 'n' Treasures mysteries by Barbara Allan
