Chihuahuas will attack anything that they feel is a threat, even it is 10 feet tall! You have to protect them from that. They are companion dogs, so they love for you to play with them and pay attention to them. One then that we do and have read experts suggesst is to give them their own blankies and toys. Each of my boys have thier own blanky to snuggle with as well as a basket of toys.

If you are firm, you can break her of the yapping over every little thing. My dogs now only yap when someone comes to the door or if they see someone at my house that isn't supposed to be there. Oh yeah, one more thing. Chihuahuas are NOT good pets for small children. They can't handle the energy of the children.
