Dr. Debra – At what age can you mate a male Chihuahua?

Hi – thanks for your email. Your question was – at what age can you mate your male Chihuahua? This depends on the dog but generally it is when he is interested and able. This can occur as early as 9 months to 2 years. The ideal age is probably close 2 years when he is mature.

Best of luck!
