We keep an eye on what people are searching for within our site (so we know we’re giving you the right stuff) and we keep seeing people look for how to potty train a Chihuahua. Now while we commend your thorough research (your young pup is in good hands) there really is no difference in how to potty train a chihuahua and how to potty train a puppy. This applies to you guys also ‘how to potty train a yorkie‘. Follow the same principles and you’ll be fine.

To break it down quickly in case you don’t read our other articles:

  1. Set a proper regular schedule and stick to it. Your young chihuahua will have a small bladder and weak bladder control to match it. Take them to your designated area (be it the garden if you’re house breaking – litter if your’re litter training or paper if you’re paper training) once every hour and also before and after eating or playing. It seems a lot but it’s better five minutes on the grass then half an hour cleaning and a stain on your rug.
  2. Go by praise – not punishment. If you train by praising good behaviour as opposed to punishing bad your puppy will learn a lot faster and it will be lot easier on the two of you. Using the same words and giving treats and at the right time is important. A puppy learns through repetition and schedules. After they’ve learned you have a little more flexibility but during training you should take care to keep things simple.
  3. Be consistent and patient. Your chihuahua cannot actually speak English so you need to teach them through consistency and be patient with them while they learn.

I would advice that before or during your look into how to potty train a chihuahua you take a look around the articles we have here on the how to potty train a puppy. We cover almost every subject you could need while training your young puppy. There is a lot to learn but it probably isn’t as hard as you might think.
