So your Chihuahua whining is restricting your sleeping schedule to intermittent snoozes. Is he/she always barking and crying? Is your Chihuahua whining problem causing a rift between you and the neighbors? If so then you must understand that no amount of Chihuahua whining tolerance on your part is worth the breakdown of formal relations with real people, you must set about resolving the issue forthwith.
If you have just gotten your hands on the little noisy rascal then God forbid our saying this but she is already at the age where she is old enough to be taught some lessons. Put him/ her in their cage to dampen the sound of Chihuahua whining yes, but moreover to teach that they just can’t be making noise all of the time.
That is what this breed does best, packing quite a decibel level for such a tiny thing. Chihuahua whining and barking is a problem suffered in vain by many if not most Chihuahua owners, stand out alone by having the wherewithal to punish when punishment is due no matter how bad it makes you feel as a pet lover. Chihuahua whining is mainly a call out for attention and you must let them bark away if you don’t have a cage.
Don’t give in, don’t give them the attention that they are striving towards lest they realize that they get their own way. Chihuahua whining will be only the beginning of your problems if you let your Chihuahua rule the roost. Make hay when the sun shines, show your approval when the Chihuahua whining stops. It’s a case of making the animal learn through embedding the thought in their mind with repeated consistent similar actions. They will soon learn which side their bread is buttered on, and realize that no amount of Chihuahua whining is going to get them what they want. Chihuahua whining is a direct result of the close bond you have formed with him / her and much as a kid will need to go to bed alone so must they.
Unless you are determined to be extraordinarily close to your pet then Chihuahua whining is best not resolved by letting the animal sleep with you. These are little ruthless animals who know the mentality of their owners, known on occasion to make ‘a mess’ right in front of you to show you their annoyance, it is a hard road to travel but the punishment route is the best one to goal. In controlling Chihuahua whining, you must let the animal know who is boss. It is unlikely that a Vet will be able to assist (unless they give you sleeping tablets) so you must take the bull by the horns to resign your Chihuahua whining issue to the past.
Maybe you have moved recently and the animal is having anxiety issues in accustoming him / herself to the new environment, the Chihuahua whining will remain until you do something about it, it is cruel to be kind, but the animal will be a happier one, and you will be a happier human when they learn their place.
