- Pinot is a 1 year, 5 mo. old Chihuahua in Blandon, PA
The world can be a big scary place for a little guy like Pinot. But luckily there's a place where he feels totally safe, and that is on a person's lap. He takes some time to warm up to people, but once he's comfortable, he tends to be clingy! He loves playing with my two cats a home. When on the leash, he tends to get leash aggressive and will bark and lunge at other people walking by to protect his human. I have been training him to become less leash aggressive and we made some good progress. I never yank the leash and yell no, instead, I distract him with a treat or two in order to de-sensitize him to the trigger. When he see's other humans walk by, instead of his initial reaction being 'I need to bark and protect' he goes 'Oh, when I see a human walk by, that means I get a treat'. He has his moments but is generally OK with it.
