This highly energetic dog loves to play with children, often displaying hyperactivity when the little ones are around them. Hence, it is advisable to keep an eye on your dog, or else the little one might easily hurt itself.
They can be equally good with their fellow pets, provided, they have properly been socialized since puppyhood. However, the Chussel is known to display dominant behavior in front of other dogs, even when they are much larger by size.
They tend to bark less and might not alert their family members when there is a stranger around since they are very reserved and cautious with them. This trait prevents them from being a good watch dog.
The Cocker Spaniel Yorkie Mixes are intelligent and tend to express human-like emotions. They are always ready to please, usually bonding strongly with one of their family members.
Training the chussel puppies can be difficult, and might not be suitable for the first-time owners. Your persistence and patience is the keyword to successfully train your dog.
These energetic dogs are in need of sufficient amount of nutritious food that would provide them with consistent energy. The primary protein source of this energetic breed can be foods like fish, chicken, salmon, beef, etc. But while feeding your dog, its proneness to stomach problems should also be kept into consideration.
