Temperament and Behavior
The Cojack is a loyal and extremely active breed also being affectionate and family-friendly. They enjoy the attention of their family members, and in return would give their love back. This breed detests staying alone for long. They are friendly with children and other pets in the family.
Though stubborn at times, Cojacks are intelligent always eager to please their owners, thus making their process of training easier. They stay aloof to unknown faces. Basically, they are not prone to excessive barking, however, some individuals do bark to announce the arrival of a stranger. They are agile and are adept at learning new tricks.
Your dog is loaded with zeal and enthusiasm, and daily exercise is a must for this breed. Allow it to play all day to its heart’s content, take it out for walks or for runs, let it have fun with your kids, or just any healthy activities or games it likes like flyball, play rings, etc. This should also keep your dog mentally fit and happy, and help it to remain diverted from mental issues like separation anxiety. The short coat of the cojack does not require vigorous grooming. They also do not shed much. Simply brush your dog a couple of times every week to get rid of dead hairs and dirt. No breed specific health issues in particular, have been reported, except for those that are common to other breeds in general, or those that are genetically carried down.
Channelise their agility in a positive way by teaching them any amusing trick like how to dance. Hold a foodstuff up and slightly behind your dog’s head and utter commands like ‘dance’ or ‘spin’. Your dog will stand up on its two hind legs. Start spinning the food around its nose, and then its head, so that it rotates its head round and round. Keep repeating the process frequently. However, refrain from this trick, if your dog has any problem with its hind feet.
To remove the fear of loneliness from your dog’s mind, prepare it right from its puppy days. Start leaving your house just for a few minutes, and then keep extending the time slowly, every day from 10 minutes to 20, and then 40 or an hour. Gradually your dog will learn to spend a complete 8-hour seclusion before you return home from work.
To help it get rid of stubbornness or stranger issues, keep your dog happy. Socialize it by taking it to public places and entertainment spots where it can meet lots of people, and experience new things. Take it to dog-friendly malls, dog parks, fairs, lakes, beaches, pet stores, just anywhere they are given entry.
Grain-free dry kibbles are good for this breed. Primary sources of protein can be red meat, chicken, fishes like salmon, etc.
