With a big house and a full pack of Chihuahuas, our life was pretty chaotic. There was just so much going on, that we never seemed to settle into a routine with the dogs. They always seemed to eat, play and potty at different times.
Now that the doggies are the main focus of my life, they finally have the structure they needed. Little dogs are are like small children, and they're definitely creatures of habit. With dad, they eat, play and potty on the same schedule every day.
They seem to prefer being on a set schedule. My Chihuahuas are now tiny, well oiled machines!
