Since Chihuahuas are very sensitive and fragile puppies, they are less suitable for a household with small children.
As a rule, a Chihuahua purchase is recommended when the children are six years old and older. At this age, a more careful, understanding of the handling of animals is given.
Chihuahuas are strongly influenced by their caregiver. Any jealousy towards other animals and people can be mitigated with good socialization and training.
Due to its friendly, good-natured nature, however, it is wonderfully suited as a family dog. Since dogs love to play, older children can spend a lot of time with them.
