Chihuahuas have very short hair which makes them more susceptible to sun burn in the summer and chapped skin in the winter. Their vivacious temperaments often cause them to be out in the weather longer than they should. Dry regions can also cause itchy, flaky skin and a moisturizing shampoo once a month should help. Bathing too frequently washes away the skin's natural oils and can cause it to dry and flake.
