Their hair may be long or short and their appearance will range between the Shih-Tzu and Dachshund.

add info


Schweenies are loving, loyal and have plenty of personality. They are easy to train and eager to please. They tend to attach themselves to one owner and favor that person even to the point they may develop separation anxiety. It’s best to socialize them with children from birth. They interact well with large and small breeds but can tend to be somewhat moody.

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.

Schweenie Q&A

Ask a Question

I have a 10 week old, male schweenie. He has been fabulous and learns very quickly. We both work day shift and I have been keeping him in the bathroom during the day. My mom has been coming to get him in the afternoon or I go and let him out on my lunch. I am curious to know if he will get used to me leaving in the mornings as at this point he cries, barks and scratches at the door. It breaks my heart and I fear that he will develop some kind of anxiety disorder. Any help or reassurance would be great.

ours had that problem when we got her at 12weeks old. I found on amazon some anxiety/calming spray and that DAP diffuser. We spray the crate and fabric about 10mins before we place her in the pen and the difusser is constantly in the room.... it has gotten 99% better. In fact at night now she can't run fast enough to her crate (she is now just over 13weeks) Even on the weekends when we still continue our "workday" ritual.... meaning we get up let her pee and then put her back in the pen for a bit then let her out.... she seems to be adjusting well and realizing that we do in fact come back for her. She started out last monday putting up such a fit that we were afraid she would hurt herself... she even started howling (must be the hound dog eh?) now she is way better.
