Tiffany Chihuahuas

Tiffany Chihuahuas

Welcome to Tiffany Chihuahuas - the World of Love, Happiness and Perfection. We pride by ourselves on Producing the Best quality pure bred Chihuahua Puppies that are seen in UK these days. All of our dogs are very much a big part of our family, which is evident from their fabulous nature.

We do not operate kennels. All of Our Chihuahuas have specially designed areas within the house to ensure they lead healthy and happy life as animal welfare is of utmost importance to us.

Love and admiration for this wonderful breed has been passed through to us via three generations of family. This breed is truly our obsession and has a unique personality, often thinking much like a human. If you never had the joy of owning a Chihuahua but are considering buying one, you will be fascinated and entertained with the level of intelligence, sensitivity, humour and even security given without asking for much in return by these lovely little creatures. 

Pomeranians

Pomeranians

Pomeranians are usually easy to keep, although some are finicky eaters. They do not have a tendency toward obesity, probably because of their active nature. The double coat does require some regular grooming attention once or twice weekly, with daily sessions during shedding season.

Despite being small, Pomeranians do need regular exercise and thrive on training. They are very intelligent and enjoy learning tricks and performing. Poms generally get along well with other pets, but caution should be used mixing any toy breed with large breeds that might injure a toy dog accidentally. If raised with children they do quite well; if not, they may be reserved. Children need to be reminded that these smaller dogs may not be as sturdy as larger dogs, and interactions should be supervised.

Poms are excellent watchdogs with their alert attitude and their tendency to bark. They make very good companions for elderly folks because of their alertness and their small size.

Allergies in Dogs

Allergies in Dogs

 

Skin Allergies, called allergic dermatitis, are the most common type of allergic reactions in dogs. There are three main causes of skin allergies in dogs:

  1. Flea allergy dermatitis
  2. Food allergies
  3. Environmental allergens

Flea allergy dermatitis is an allergic reaction to flea bites. Some dogs are allergic to flea saliva. This makes affected dogs extremely itchy, especially at the base of the tail, and their skin may become red, inflamed, and scabbed. You may also notice signs of fleas, such as flea dirt, or even see the fleas themselves.

Food allergies and sensitivities can cause itchy skin, as well. The most common places dogs with food allergies itch are their ears and their paws, and this may be accompanied by gastrointestinal symptoms.

Environmental allergens, such as dust, pollen, and mold, can cause an atopic allergic reactions or atopic dermatitis. In most cases, these allergies are seasonal, so you may only notice your dog itching during certain times of the year. As with food allergies, the most commonly affected areas are the paws and ears (but also include the wrists, ankles, muzzle, underarms, groin, around the eyes, and in between the toes.

All skin allergies pose the risk of secondary infection. As your dog scratches, bites, and licks at his skin, he risks opening up his skin to yeast and bacterial infections that may require treatment.

Pomeranian

Pomeranian
Descended from large sled dog breeds, the now-tiny Pomeranian has a long and interesting history. The foxy- or teddy-faced dog, nicknamed “the little dog who thinks he can,” is compact, active and capable of competing in agility and obedience or simply being a family friend...

Keeping Dogs Cool in Hot Weather

Keeping Dogs Cool in Hot Weather

  • Avoid taking your dog for as many walks as you normally would.
  • Walks in the morning or evening are best (and if there’s a stream for them to splash about in, even better!)
  • If they’re out in the garden, be sure to give them shade to lie down in
  • Be sure to keep one room of the house well-aired and cool
  • If your pup has light fur or is missing hair in one spot, consider getting some hypo-allergenic suncream
  • Make sure they have plenty of access to water
  • Give them an ice pack or wet towel to lie on
  • Bring a collapsible water bowl on long walks
  • Never EVER leave your dog in the car, even if it’s for a short time.
  • Get them a shallow, cool paddling pool – plus it’s super cute!
  • If they have thick fur, why not give them a haircut and help them cool down easier?
  • Dogs paws can burn on hot pavement. If you can’t keep your bare skin on the pavement for more than 5 seconds, it’s too hot.
  • Keep an eye on them while outside, if they get warm they may try and drink any liquid they come across in the garden

Are you ready for a dog?

Are you ready for a dog?

Dog ownership is a decision that brings many rewards with it. These can include a healthier lifestyle, improved sociability and sense of community, as well as companionship.

To ensure that you are able to enjoy these benefits it is essential that you ask yourself the following questions before getting a puppy or dog:

  • Can I afford to have a dog? Ongoing expenses such as food, veterinary fees and canine insurance can cost roughly £25 a week.
  • Can I make a lifelong commitment to a dog? A dog's average life span is 12 years.
  • Is my home big enough to house a dog?
  • Do I really want to exercise a dog every day?
  • Will there be someone at home for a dog? Dogs get lonely just like humans.
  • Will I find time to train, groom and generally care for a dog?
  • Will I be able to answer YES to these questions every day of the year?

If you have answered 'NO' to any of the above, you should think again before getting a dog.

Pomeranian Dogs

Pomeranian Dogs
Pomeranian dogs are loved for their thick fluffy coats, curled tails, small ears and teddy bear-like faces. The Pomeranian is a compact, short-backed, the double coat consists of a short dense undercoat with a profuse harsh textured longer outer coat. The heavily plumed tail is one of the characteristics of the breed - it is set high and lies flat on the back. He is alert in character, exhibits intelligence in expression, is buoyant in deportment and is inquisitive by nature. The Pomeranian is cocky, commanding and animated as he gaits. He is sound in composition and action. Recently, Teddy Bear dogs have been gaining popularity as pets.These dogs acquired their name from their teddy-like features - their button nose and eyes and soft very fluffy fur.

Regular puppy ear checks.. what to look for

Regular puppy ear checks.. what to look for

When you look inside your puppy’s ears, you are looking to check that they are healthy and free from problems.

Common ear problems that you may spot with a simple weekly inspection are

  • A build up of dark wax
  • Redness or soreness
  • Smelly ears

Any of these may indicate that your puppy has a problem, such as an infection.

Healthy ears look pink not red or sore, and your puppy’s ears should not smell of anything.
