For the of a

Folks think that bc are they're an easy breed. They're not. Of our 2 Chis & 2 , the later are by farrrr the easier breed. That said, Chis are wonderful.

are not the kind of dogs that fit seamlessly into your lifestyle, but the sort you build your life around. They're the kind of allowed on the bed and all the furniture - even tho they have their own.

Chis are not the happy-go-lucky, friendly-to-all too many mistake them for. They're suspicious by nature and do not award their trust freely to newcomers! Chihuahuas make you EARN their trust, and bond tightly to one person - and at best just a few ppl. So if that's not your jam, think twice before getting one.

Chis don't respond well to harsh training methods. To bring out the best in your Chi, be gentle w/her. Be patient. Be kind. Give her the time to get to know you, and to begin to understand she is safe. It doesn't happen overnight, but over many moons.

Make yourself trustworthy to her. Put her on a reliable sleep/wake, eat/potty schedule she can come to rely on. Give her grace when she makes mistakes - and she will. Be firm but fair in your training of her, and lead always with love.

The fastest way to bond a Chihuahua to you is to invite her to find her place upon your bed. It is the safest place in the world to a Chi. Ours routinely one give birth under my duvet due precisely to that fact.

Some prefer to sleep atop your pillows. Some like to burrow down to the foot. Some like to sleep in the crook of your neck or back or elbow. You won't squish them - you adjust, they adjust. Many of the most beautiful and profound bonding moments w/your Chi will happen there, in bed.

Get foam block stairs off your bed, lest she jump, and throw a knee out. Put her potty station in the furthest corner from your bed. That's where she'll naturally wanna go. Doing so will ease her adjustment greatly, and you'll both get better sleep faster. It doesn't hinder outdoor training later on one bit! Once she learns your "Go Potty" cue, you can take it anywhere.

While not for the faint of heart, Chis are fiercely loyal 🐾❤️

Our foundational program here at .chihuahuas really does give them the tools to be .

From 4 weeks old, we hijack instinctual tactile responses, pair them w/verbal commands, and teach our where to go. I'm always so proud to hear they've carried the skill home.

I get this question every day. "Why are your pups so expensive?!" This is the answer.

is NOT a big money business! Not even close. One can hardly even call it a business bc we're so often and easily put in the red. Lol

It is a . A calling. A beloved hobby that overruns everything else in your life. Like raising any young creature, your compensation comes in the form of love. In the form of fulfillment in nurturing them and watching them blossom and grow strong into whatever they will be.

We are in Western WA on the Pacific Coast. Veterinary costs differ from state to state, often dramatically. But where we are, in our program, this is the fiscal breakdown for a litter of 5, like the one we just raised. Pics in their homes with their forthcoming. 🐾💓

•Planned C-sections run at least $3k
•Emergencies C-sections run $5-7k ALONE
•Ultrasounds are $150. Xrays are $180
•Pre+Neonatal Vitamins & Care: $250

•3 Sets of Vaccines: $50/pup - $250/litter
•FiNano Microchips: $3/pup - $15/litter
•6 Rounds/ Quality Wormer: $12/pup - $60/litter
•Vet Health Checks & Certs: $120/pup - $600/litter
•Goat Milk + Ge**er Meats: $22/pup - $110/litter
•Puppy Kibble + Deccox: $16/pup - $80/litter
•Puppy Packs: $170/pup - $850/litter

Supposing everything goes right, and no complications or need for C-Section arise, that's an upfront investment of $2395 on a litter of 5.

I keep my pups 9+ weeks. Caring for them directly 12 hrs a day (and it's often more) for that time frame, birth to adoption, per litter, is 3,240 hours of labor.

•Worth $16,200 at just $5 bucks an hour -- less than 1/3 of WA state minimum wage of $15.74.

•So if I allow myself just a $5 hourly wage,
I spend $18,595 on every litter.

•Divided by 5, the figure it costs me to produce each puppy is $3,719.

•Pups I then sell to my vetted, dedicated Puppy Families for $3800.

--------Making my net profit $81 per pup-------
------------and $405 per litter of 5.--------------

And that doesn't include ANY of the genetic testing, vet care, or general care of our parent dogs.

I don't do this for the money. No breeder does! We do it for love. For betterment of breed. For the joy it brings us, and the opportunity to magnify and extend that & to those in need of it.

Many of my puppy families come to me devasted at the recent loss of a , friend, or family member. I myself began this program after suffering a devastating loss... and so I understand. There is a reason are called "man's best ."

-------------------IN THE RED----------------------
Now, I prefer to do the math as outlined above... bc if I allow myself the actual minimum wage for my state, and average hours of labor of 3,240 then...
that's $50,997 in labor alone,
plus my $2,395 initial investment,
totaling $53.392.

With 5 pups selling at $3,800 and $19,000 total,
leaving me $34,392 IN THE RED per litter, for every healthy, uncomplicated litter I produce. IF I made minimum wage -- which I don't.

Heaven help us if ANYTHING goes wrong during pregnancy, or with any pup, bc any serious complication thrusts us immediately and deeply in the red!

There's really no telling how far. That's why all our dogs are insured. Ensuring them proper, timely veterinary care... care but never profit.

Bc no matter how well educated you are, how well vetted and cared for your dogs, or how well planned and paired a litter may be... this is life. We're holding in our hands. And there are natural forces at play well out of our control. This is the gamble every breeder plays with every single litter.

So now you understand. We do it for love of the dog. For the love of our chosen breeds. And for the people who love them.

"Sweet Mercy, Nobility's True Badge"

Mercy is kind of a d***y girl. She gallops around, her blonde hair aloft, falls flat on her face, and gets up with a smile, ready to do it again. But she tries real hard and is hands down the best cuddler ever! A veritable teddy bear.

Ko & I saved this pair of sad discounts orchids getting no love or sun at all from a cart at the back of the grocery store... and we helped them recover and bloom.

I like the standing, ruddy lavender one a lot... but the ultra light pastel purple one that wasn't crutched and was allowed to grow its own way is my favorite.

Duchess and the crew love their new Wash n' Zip ! It's bc it unzips into a and a comforter, too. So !

The removable cover is nearly indestructable while still being and . Perfect for & who chew!

Both the cover and inner bed are machine washable - a helpful feature, indeed! Folks really should be washing their beds about once a month.

Great for , car rides, or just around the house. We've got it in the kitchen, here - so the have a place to when I'm cooking.

This is an important 3 min read for all my puppy families & prospective puppy families. Because language DOES matter. It shapes your training mindset and methodology, and sets your puppy up for longterm failure or success.

While I do still use "commands" with my dogs, I also use cues. Trained right, what starts as a command later becomes a cue. Example: I used to command sit. Now it's just a simple hand gesture.

Using hand gestures alongside commands, or teaching a form of sign language, as it were, helps build a mutual language w/your dog -- one you both understand -- enabling commands to evolve into cues in the well-trained dog.

Words I never use in training: It. Bad. Break. It's never our goal to "break" a dog. The goal is understanding. Period. If a dog understands what you're asking, and is capable of it, they will do it. That's what earned them the title of "Man's Best Friend."

The goal of training is to foster understanding. Understanding of what is expected of them. Of what they can and can't do. Of what is safe and unsafe. Of what is fun and not fun. Of what you like and don't like. And not to bend them to your will by force or fear.

Why the words you use make a difference in your relationship with your dog – and perhaps even the success of your dog training program.
