Apologizing to your Chihuahua when you accidentally hurt them or make them upset can help repair the relationship between you and your furry friend. Although it is unclear whether dogs truly understand apologies, some experts suggest that they can forgive. Dogs live in the present moment and quickly move on from negative experiences. To apologize to your Chihuahua, it is important to do it at the right time and use a soft and soothing tone of voice. Instead of immediately hugging them, give them some space and show them lots of attention and playtime to make it up to them. Avoid using treats as an apology, as it could confuse your dog.
