Feeding Time Tips
Set a relaxed feeding schedule so that your Chihuahua knows about when a meal is coming but does not become a pest as the clock strikes 5 pm. If feeding time is usually somewhere between 5 and 6 pm, your dog won't panic when you're late.
Teach your dog to sit before you place the food bowl on the floor. If the dog is sitting, it won't jump at the bowl, spilling food all over the floor.
Allow 15 to 20 minutes for your dog to clean its dish, then pick up the bowl.
Don't free-feed if you are housetraining your dog; dogs that have constant access to food have constant activity in their digestive systems.
Keep children away from your dog during feeding time; your pet should never feel it has to defend its food against toddlers or older children.
