At last your new family member is coming home! You need to make some plans before bringing home your bundle of joy of a Chihuahua puppy. Make some of your home off-limits at first.
Now about furniture: Chihuahuas enjoy looking around their surroundings while perched on high…. but they can hurt themselves jumping off high places. A good general rule to follow is if they can’t jump up to a place by themselves, they shouldn’t jump down from that place. You can buy or make a ramp that leads to favorite lookouts or nesting spots. Be sure a sleeping Chihuahua puppy or adult cannot roll off a high bed.
