It is common for a parent to ask, “Are Chihuahuas good with kids?” before getting a small dog for their family. The answer to this is not as simple as yes, or no.
All dog breeds can be right for living with children, but sometimes you have to do some training before the kid and the dog begins to get along. And it’s not just the dog that needs training. Your children will need to learn how to handle your chihuahua the right way so that the dog feels safe and secure around them.
Bringing any new pet into your home requires an investment into the training of you, the dog, and your family to get along. The Chihuahua dog breed is the perfect size for kids and is a great dog if you don’t have space for a large pet in your home.
