Crank Up the AC Dog Heater and Other Cold Weather Tips! As much as your pooch may love romping around in the snow, their winter coats may be not enough to keep protected through the coldest months.

The breed does have several health problems that owners need to be aware of. They have a very short nose which causes them to sneeze and snore. Because their eyes are so large, they are prone to corneal dryness. Other common health problems include colds, stress, gum problems and rheumatism. You need to be sure not to over-feed Chihuahuas because they gain weight very easily.
Finally, you should winter-proof your dog by getting him acclimated to the cold. Leave your pet outside for short intervals that gradually get longer so they can ease into the weather. Moreover, by feeding it proteins and foods rich in fish oil, you will help to fortify their coat. As a side note, most outdoor pets require more food overall in winter to maintain the same energy levels. In addition, if you have him groomed, keep his fur longer than you would when you have your pet groomed in summer.
