You will find the Cheenese to be a happy and loyal little fellow. He is alert and will let you know when someone is approaching. Usually he doesn\'t get on well with small children, but this may be overcome with early socialization. Generally older children are a better match for this designer dog.

Ideal Environment

An apartment will suit this little fellow well. But if he has a fenced yard all the better to expend some energy. He is alert and intelligent and will thrive if given plenty of mental stimulation. A trip to the dog park will enhance socialization skills.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
