Dogs Respond Well to Routines
But when that routine is disrupted, you can expect possible bad behavior. It’s our way of showing our disapproval of your bad behavior.
I like to get up around 7:30 am. I get to use the outdoor restroom, play, and have breakfast. Occasionally I allow my daddy to try brushing my teeth. Mostly I just like the toothpaste and chew the toothbrush a little.
After a little playtime it’s time for my morning nap in daddy’s home office.
Sometime around 11 it’s time for my long morning walk. Then it’s lunch time. I mostly just get a snack while daddy pigs-out.
I look forward to my afternoon nap, which is interrupted by another long walk around 3 pm. After that, another much deserved nap.
My other daddy comes home about 6. Then yet another walk as a family, meeting and greeting neighbors along the way.
Then comes dinnertime, play time and then relaxing in front of the TV before bedtime.
Routines make me feel comfortable. I know what to expect.
So it’s best to stick to your dog’s routine whenever possible.
Change your Chihuahua’s Routine Occasionally
It couldn’t hurt to mix it up once in a while, like taking your dog on a different route for their walk. Or taking them on an outing to a pet store for a treat.
Or how about a nice little lunch out? I love going to Daphne’s or Chicken Maison and sitting in the outdoor dining area with my daddies. I often get a bit of chicken or salad.
