Long before Taco Bell or Elle Woods endeared Chis to the masses, we came to know that Chihuahua parents understand things beyond our grasp. Aside from rocking tiny sombreros and bedazzles, this breed makes every day worth it.

Chihuahua parents understand many things, but we’re certain that they will truly feel the following ones:

Chis Travel Light

Chihuahuas are the ultimate travel companions. They can stow inconspicuously in your bag as you like. We’re certain that every Chihuahua parent has a “Guess where I snuck my dog into?” story to tell.

Chihuahuas Are the OG “Mini Me”-s

What’s a Chihuahua’s personality like? Well, just like yours. Especially if raised from puppyhood, this breed often mirrors its parents. Chihuahua parents understand that if you’re super social, he’ll be the ultimate wingman.

Chis Need You to Be Nice

Chihuahuas are super smart and can be trained, but they have little tolerance for punishment and negative reinforcement. So, remember to say “please” and “thank you,” mmmkay?

ChiChis Support the Tiny Lifestyle

Size doesn’t matter to Chihuahuas, who are perfectly suited to small living spaces. They don’t need a big backyard to be happy, just your unconditional love.

Chihuahuas Appreciate Warm Clothes

Don’t tell Chihuahuas, but they are actually quite small in stature. Therefore, they have little natural insulation for chilly weather. They prefer a warm climate or a fabulous puffer jacket from your favorite designer.

Chis Are Restless to Play

Fetch? Yes! Chase? Yes! Tug on the rope? Yes! Find the treat? Yes! The Chihuahua has never met a game they didn’t like. (Except maybe Go Outside to Use the Bathroom.)

Chihuahuas Will NEVER Settle with Seconds

Like all petite creatures, there isn’t much room on the Chihuahua frame to hide too many extra treats. Chihuahua parents understand that their pups come first, ALWAYS.

Chis Need Clear Boundaries

From extra snuggles to elaborate wardrobes. From exotic vacations courtesy of your shoulder bag, the Chihuahua is easy to overindulge and will quickly feel entitled. (Pro tip: don’t fall asleep with your Amazon app open.)

You Can’t Housebreak a Chihuahua

Easy to love (and maybe squeeze a little too hard), Chihuahuas are not recommended for households with little kids. But, don’t worry. Your dog will play the role of the charming toddler who pees where it pleases. Chihuahua parents understand that’s a given, and they’ve come to terms with it!

Chis are First in Line for the Neighborhood Watch

With razor-sharp smarts, the Chihuahua doesn’t mind letting you know any (and every) time something seems amiss. And by amiss, we mean there’s a FedEx package at the door. Still, that’s helpful to some extent.

Chihuahua Parents Understand they’re Friends for Life

With an average lifespan of 18 years, the Chihuahua is ready and willing to take up a big piece of your heart and life. And, a surprisingly big part of your bed, if you let them!
