Chihuahua Forum

Welcome to the Chihuahua forum!

Is your Chihuahua driving you up the wall? Do you want to know about more Chihuahua facts? Do you need more information about applehead Chihuahuas and deer Chihuahuas? Are you concerned about dog food allergies? In that case you have come to the right place.


As you will be all too aware, owning a Chihuahua is not always easy. Your Chi can be a difficult dog and develop behavioral or even health issues. Not everyone understands or knows how to handle this breed, so why not turn to others who may have already gone through the problems you are going through now and come out on the other side?

Our Forum About Chihuahuas

By asking your question and submitting your problems on our forum you will be able to draw on the experience of the thousands of readers that visit our site every month, who may provide just the answer that you have been looking for.


Our forum is not just a one way street though. You may find that other readers out there are posing questions which you know the answer to and be able to help them with it. We encourage and would love to see interaction between our readers and members of the Chihuahua loving community.


Don’t have a question to ask? That’s not a problem, feel free to submit your Chihuahua story along with the images of your Chi you have accumulated over the years and we will put them up.
