I love dogs. LOVE them.

But I must say that a chihuahau puppy isn't a dog. It's a rat that barks.

THIS is a dog:

Dogs are smarter than you give credit... that dog probably KNOWS you hate it and took a dump on your carpet just to piss you off.

I agree, the rat knew what it was doing. We had a Cairn Terrier that was punished for peeing on the floor, so it ran into the bedroom, jumped on the bed and laid down a load just as mom was coming into the room.

Dogs are wolves... canis lupus, straight up. Canis Lupus Lupus is the grey wolf, Canis Lupis Familiaris is the dawg. I'm not really a dog person (not that I'd mind having a wolf in my house, but I have more of a cat lifestyle) but I've had plenty of success with my sister-in-law's rat-wolves (shi-tzu bichon crosses) by taking an assertive posture and making constant eye contact. Wolves find eye contact from someone bigger pretty intimidating. This may prove more effective than kicking it. Sister-in-law's rats leave the room when I walk in now, and I didn't risk trouble from SWMBO over assaulting them...

With a minimal amount of training by a complete nincompoop (me) our dog will sit, stay, beg, wave, jump up, lie down, and kennel up every time.

We found this effective: prepare to make the dog do what you're going to command, say the command and immediately make it do what you want, then reward it with a treat and a big "Good Boy/Girl!". Do not repeat the command and be ready to immediately make the dog sit before you say the command. This works really well for us.

I'm not condoning this, since I like dogs; it's just an option based upon what an acquaintance of mine said he did once upon a time.

Situation: Yappy dog that was driving said acquaintance nuts, including copious pooping.

Solution: Acquaintance told new wife that he was taking the dog hunting. Upon his return from hunting, without the aforementioned canine, he simply explained that it ran away. . . .

I was always told that Chihuahuas were bred to eliminate rodents. They're good at chasing them down and getting into their living spaces to chase them out.

A bad dog is really just a owner with a lack of intelligence. To be blunt...
I read a book awhile back that posed the theory that dogs have a pack mentality. Somebody has to lead the pack and if the owner doesn't act as a leader, then the dog will take the reins and lead the pack. That said, the owner must assert their position as leader and the dog will gladly follow.

Chihuahuas are great. The only problem is raising them for 18 months.
By then they're big enough to make 3 good size tacos.
