The Cheaglehund is a small cross known for its cute looks and well-disposed temperament. Genetically, it is half the Chihuahua, and one-fourth of both the Beagle and the Dachshund.

Having more of Chihuahua in it, it tends to be alert and enthusiastic. However, it has also inherited the sober and friendly nature of the Beagle.
This lap dog can typically make a good family companion, also getting along well with children. Not enjoying the cold weather, they would sleep close to you under the blanket. The combination of protectiveness and affection keeps them extremely loyal all their life.
These indoor dogs can be submissive and nervous at times. They are intelligent, but like Dachshunds, some might be fond of agility and activities or can even display independence or aggression at times, resulting in barking behavior.
Obedience: While your pup is barking too frequently, simply throw your command “stop barking” and hold a treat near its mouth. It might get busy in sniffing the treat and forget barking for a while. Give him the reward after he has remained quite for a few seconds. Keep increasing the time from when it stops barking to giving off the treat.
Socialization: It is required to help them to get rid of their nervous and submissive nature.
Agility: Do not begin with jumps right away. Begin with getting your pup used to walk through different kinds of surfaces like wood planking, rugs, sidewalks, etc.
