My chihuahua will come when called, but will not let you pick him up, he runs when you go to pick him up. How can I stop this?

Stay with it when he finally lets you pick him up but is still hesitant give him a treat and tell him its ok and just love on him so he knows nothing bad will happen

Someone may have picked your chihuahua up incorrectly and caused him pain. My little guy hates to be picked up by anyone except me. I am careful to put one hand under his chest and one under his rump and lift him slowly. If you lift him quickly it is like you going up several stories in one second. Once he knows it won't feel bad, he'll let you lift him. Never lift him by the ribs or legs.
