Find out more about this precious pup with a lot of online fans in this exclusive interview.

Dog Whisperer HQ: Tell us about yourself, Chihuahua Cedric!
Cedric: My name is Cedric and I’m a chihuahua. I share my daily life on Instagram and on YouTube under the name Chihuahua Cedric. I share little moments from my daily life and my bigger adventures. I began doing this to share my life with my family that lives in another country. Very soon afterward, more people started following me in large numbers. Now, I have many friends from all around the world. 

DW: Are you full chihuahua?
C: Yes! I’m an apple head long haired chihuahua. 

DW: Who are your owners? Can you tell us about them?
C: My owners wish to remain as private as possible. Sometimes you can see glimpses of them in my videos or hear their voices, but overall they don’t want to be known. However, I can tell you that my mom was born in Estonia, just like me, and my dad was born in Canada, where we all live right now. My mom is the one who takes all the Instagram photos of me and films YouTube videos. She’s always loved to be creative and we work well as a team. 

DW: How long have you been with your owners, and what is your bond like?
C: I met my owners when I was five months old. I am eight years old right now and I’ve lived with my humans for most of my life. We do everything together. They always try to find a way to bring me with them wherever we go. Like when we travel together, they always think about dog-friendly places to visit before booking anything. If they can’t bring me, we won’t go! I’m part of the family and they don’t like to leave me behind. For them I’m not a pet, but a family member.

DW: Where did they first meet you?
C: I was the last puppy left in the litter that no one wanted, because I have a severe overbite. My humans knew my biological father and that’s how they learned about me. They had been wanting a small dog that they could easily travel with, but they hadn’t really started looking for a dog yet. When they saw a video of me playing with my siblings, they fell in love immediately and decided I was going to be part of the family. Five months later, they came to Estonia to get me. When they first saw me in person, they were surprised. I had seemed much bigger in the photos and videos. They were terrified that they would accidentally step on me or hurt me. We got to know each other over a few weeks and they stopped worrying as they saw I was very smart and careful.

I love discovering new places and meeting new people and trying new foods. The first trip I did with my humans was a road trip through France right after we left Estonia. I loved France — dogs are allowed everywhere there. I got to eat in restaurants, go shopping, walk around historic sites and taste delicious French cheese.

DW: What are your favorite activities?
C: I love traveling! I get extremely excited when my humans take out the luggage. I love discovering new places and meeting new people and trying new foods. The first trip I did with my humans was a road trip through France right after we left Estonia. I loved France — dogs are allowed everywhere there. I got to eat in restaurants, go shopping, walk around historic sites and taste delicious French cheese. It was a very special time to bond with my humans and learn to trust them. I think maybe that’s why I love traveling: it strengthens our bond.

I also love learning. Ever since I was a puppy, my favourite thing to do was to learn new tricks. I don’t even do it for the snacks; I just enjoy all the special attention that I get from my humans. Now that I’m older, I don’t learn new tricks as often. I mostly practice the tricks I know as part of my daily routine. We practice in the morning and a bit in the evening while having snacks. It’s so much fun!

DW: What are your favorite foods and snacks?
C: I love eating boiled chicken! I also like seafood, but that’s more of an occasional treat. I will never say no to a piece of lobster! My favourite dog treat is any treat from Farm Fresh Pet Treats. They are a Canadian company and make the best dog treats in the whole world. I know, I’ve tried a lot of different treats in my life. I also like eating vegetables and fruits. I love freshly steamed edamame the most. It’s nutritious and delicious! You should try it too!

Kenzo and Cedric.

DW: Do you have any best friends?
C: My biological father is my best friend. His name is Kenzo and he looks just like me! We get along so well. When I go visit him in Estonia, we are inseparable. We do everything together as much as possible. We share a bond that is magical. He is as relaxed and sweet as me and we both like very similar things. Spending time with him is always fun.

DW: You’ve worn some cute outfits — what are your favorites?
C: My favourite thing to wear is my neon yellow-green sweater. It was specially made for me so it fits like a glove. It’s not always easy to find clothes small enough for my tiny body. Regardless, my mom is always finding me cute outfits. I like my cute hoodie and my warm winter coat too, not to mention my Halloween costumes. I like the vampire costume, because it’s easy to move around in. Some other costumes look good, but I don’t actually feel comfortable in them. Mom just puts them on me for photos. I don’t mind as long as she doesn’t tell me that I need to wear it for the whole day!

Where’s Cedric?

BOOO! Did I scare you?

DW: What are some fun facts about you we should know?
C: I love baths! I am one of those rare dogs who likes a relaxing bath time. I used to be scared of baths, but my mom decided to create a spa-like environment to relax me and herself. Now we listen to calming spa music and I get gently massaged in a warm bubble bath. It has made a huge difference for both of us. We both like my bath time now!

I was already two years old when I barked for the very first time. My humans thought I was mute or something. One day I just barked at another dog out of the blue. Everyone was startled, even me! Now I bark more often, but only at other dogs. My pet peeve is misbehaving dogs. I really get upset when other dogs don’t listen to their owners or bark for no reason. It upsets me, so I bark at them.

I love collecting toy mice. The ones that are meant for cats. When I was a puppy, I was extremely tiny, and dog toys were too big for me to play with. The small mice were perfect and most of them made some sounds too. I started getting mice as gifts, from my humans and my human friends. My collection started growing over time. My fans have even started sending me toy mice from their respective countries. It’s absolutely wonderful. I might end up becoming the dog with the most toy mice if this continues. 

DW: Finally, what’s it like being so cute?
C: I get a lot of attention. I never go on a walk without people stopping us to pet me or ask about my breed. I usually like to stop even when my humans want to keep on walking. I love all the attention and getting pet by strangers. Sometimes when someone will walk right past me and wont stop to pet me, I will get disappointed. I expect everyone to want to interact with me. I love people! Thank you for being my friends! ♥️
