Chihuahuas shed a fair amount anyway so there will probably always be some seasonal shedding. Also, puppies shed their puppy coats before their adult coats grow in. Just brush him daily and make sure you're feeding him premium food which will reduce shedding and promote healthy skin and hair.

It depends on the breed some dogs shed all the time some shed only in spring or summer and some shed in the fall or winter, my dog Skitters sheds like crazy in the spring in the summer and in the fall, as for a chihuahua I am not an expert on shedding for that breed but I know everything else about that breed I would check out or buy a book about chihuahua's, also is it a pure bred or a mix this could make a diffrance if it is a mutt I can almost garuntee that this is normal.
