Hi, I'm Jenn Fadal, founder of The Pack Mom, and this is, "What can you do to keep your chihuahua from tearing up toilet paper?" I have a chihuahua named Chico and chewing up toilet paper is one of his most favorite things to do in the world. So how can we prevent this from happening? Well the easiest thing to do is if you are gone or during the day close your bathroom door and in the very least, keep your toilet paper above his reach. So chihuahuas, a typical chihuahua isn't very tall so even if they stand up on their hind legs, they are not going to reach a toilet paper roll that's a little bit higher, maybe set it on the back of your toilet. If you can't do that, make sure your toilet paper roll is wound up and don't have any straggle or hanging toilet paper in his or her reach. Secondly, this could all be derived from an overly anxious dog and how can you help an anxiety ridden dog? Well you can try exercising them one more time or a couple more times a day, maybe an extra walk around the block or an extra round of ball playing in the back yard, that could help alleviate anxiety. If it's separation anxiety, try this, when you are going to leave during the day, try not to make a big deal about your leaving. Don't even say anything to your dog, don't say good bye, don't say oh, mommy will be back in eight hours because that makes them more anxious. So try a couple of those things. Keep a cleaner house, keep your doors closed, toilet paper up, exercise a little bit more during the day and don't make a big deal about you leaving the home and that should help. So I'm Jenn Fadal, thanks for watching and hopefully this helped you learn what you can do to help your chihuahua from tearing up toilet paper.
