It just depends on the personality of the dog. However, the chihuahua and japanese chin are two TOTALLY different dogs. It's been my experience that chins are more affectionate toward a specific group while chihuahuas tend to be more one person type dogs. This isn't always the case, it depends upon social interaction you give your dog within the first year. If you want your chin to be only your dog then limit their interraction with others and increase your presence within their daily lives for the first year. But remember that by doing this you are also creating a dog that is socially untrained and will never be suitable for small kids and other dogs. You must ALWAYS be present with the dog for atleast 70% of the day because you are creating a dog that see's you as a daily necessity instead of a companion/friend. Chins are a very emotional breed so this isnt a method of traing that I completely agree with for this breed.
