      I have one but how to train it from not snapping at other family members. She is 8 years old. Plus we just got her last week.

        Growling, barking, snapping, or biting are behaviors often triggered by ‘small dog syndrome’. All you have to do is, win the trust of your dog for your family members. Ask them to create friendly environments involving your dog. The easiest way is to play with it or plan for family picnics, etc. Ask them to begin playing with your dog (one at a time), and let them give favorite treats to your dog as and when it behaves properly. This might take a little time, but your little dog will gradually begin to feel comfortable with them. So you need patience.
        Best of luck!

    My little guy is 15 now. He is doing great, but we noticed that his hearing is diminished a bit. Smart breed! He learned many tricks early on-and the little kids in the family love it when he sits, turns around and does a little howl (barely makes a sound). His name is Gizmo-large ears of course! If you are lucky enough to ever own this breed, it will bless your life!

    My little rescue rat-cha is one year old tomorrow. Gets along great with my other 2 pure breed chihuahuas. The energy makes jack russells look calm. When not playing, he’s a snuggler. Easy pup to love. Wants to be everyones friend.

  4. This is the best dog we have ever owned.We adopted her from a pet rescue.She is now one year old.Easy to train once you have gained her trust.She is extremely affectionate.Loves to burrow under the covers at night.Do not leave outside as hates the cold.Travels well.
    On command- comes when called,sits,fetches ball,stays,plays dead,rolls over,spins,dances,gives paw & begs.
    Not good with young children as becomes nervous & fearful.
    Perfect for a retired couple.

    We have a Rat Cha since she was 8 weeks old and will be 15 weeks on Sunday (New Years Day 2017). She has the zoomies like crazy! She is super smart and learned to sit and to take treats gently! Amazing little mix breed! She is all black with a white heart on her chest and white tipped toes.

    I have a Ratcha (Nala) and she is very energetic, spoiled and loveable and lives to burrow Under blankets or any type of cover to snuggle and fall asleep. She loves to lay in my lap or anyone she trusts but does not get along very well with other dogs lately. Not sure what changed as she used to have play dates last summer. Very trainable with praise and treats. Loves to be dressed in clothes, especially pink. Great dog!!!

    My rat-cha is 3 in a half years old and has such destructive behavior. She’s chewed almost everything in my house. She has toys and a sister for companionship along with lots of love and attention. I’ve become extremely frustrated with her. She’s on her way out!

    I have a 10 month old and he is my first dog. He is great with our kids and such a sweet guy. He is intact and is not aggressive. He plays well with the neighbor’s dog. He barks to alert us, but is not a “barky” dog. He does need to be walked everyday, otherwise he gets bored and starts getting naughty.

    Macy joined our family when she was 12wks old, now 9mo. She has an appt. to be spayed, chipped, shots, anal sacs, and nail trim in two days….thankfully she will be sleeping or drowsy through most of it! I never had a small dog, never heard of Rat-Cha….then came Macy. My husband purchased her for me from a young couple that just had a baby and were moving out of state. I have a dehabilitating disease that often keeps me with limited function and my husband works out of town which leaves me alone a lot. Macy is my emotional support dog. She has been a Godsend! Macy is very smart and intuitive. She keeps me laughing with her hijinks, the more I laugh the more she entertains…she looks at me knowing exactly what her actions are doing. She has MANY TOYS and knows each one by one word association. She loves walks and meeting up with her friends, other dogs and people alike. When we are out and she hears the sound of the plastic poop bag she knows it’s time to do her business. With a click of my tongue she stops and waits for a command….HOME, Macy leads me from any direction right to our door. Macy does bark at every noise outside our door and at everyone when she is outside(She really wants them to notice her) I plan on speaking to a trainer to see if we can curb that. Macy loves everyone once she is not afraid of you anymore. Plus my floor is never dirty….keep picked up, do not even drop a pencil…my Macy will find it for You! Lol I also wear shirts on her during the day to keep shedding down. She will not go out of the bedroom now until I dress her….love my girl!

    I have a 3 month old ratcha. She is adorable but I can’t get her to calm down and stop attacking (playing) my other small dog, (Who tolerates her but doesn’t want to play 24/7). When can I leave her out of her kennel all day and night??

    I adopted a ratcha 1 week ago from the shelter. He has been very easy to potty train, the next step is to get him to sit, shake etc. He is 8lbs and gets along with my boxador who also is a rescue. Our adult children have small and large dogs, he is well with the big dogs but will snap at thiem if they push on him. Oh and like the other owner this one love to cuddle with the wife and I catch him under the covers fun and loving dog.
