    Default Foxy Trembling?

    Hi there this is my first post to the forum.
    I have a little foxy cross her name is Lucy and a little Skye Terrier cross her name is Skye
    Lucy is 3 years old she trembles a lot it doesnt have to be cold for her to tremble.
    I know some little dogs do tremble but she seems to do it a lot?
    Does anyone else have little tremblers?

    Hi Jen

    Yes I do...my little Staffy girl Ruby.

    She can do it in anticipation of food...after we have played and she gets all excited or if she gets scared.

    We do not make a big deal out of it

    Welcome to the Forum btw

    As long as she has no other health or behaviour problems, I wouldn't worry about it. As you said lots of small dogs tremble, I remember my friend's foxy used to do the same when she was excited.

    Hi i have 2 chihauhua's and they tremble alot aswell. It can be because they are excited, or scared or just happy to see us. I was also getting worried about this happening but the vet told me there is no health problems and it is common for smaller dogs to do so :-)

    We had a foxy x chihuahua and she did it all the time. It could be excitement, fear, anything. I think it's just a small dog thing. Don't stress about it.

    My Jack Russell Roly is a shaker. Its gotton 'worse' with age, but your vet is right, its just a trait with those little terriers.

    I find that putting a shirt or coat on my little guys seems to make them feel more secure. Maybe you could try that with Lucy and see if it makes a difference to her confidence
