Temperament and Behavior
Being smart, friendly, and loving, Schweenies are a family dog ideal for apartment life. They are eager to please their owners whom they rely upon heavily. Although they are somewhat moody, they get along well with other dogs. Schweenies are known to exhibit destructive behavior when separated from their owners or left alone for too long. These cute, playful dogs never snap or growl aggressively, but chew their owner’s hand while playing.
Although Schweenie is a small breed, it loves playing and running around with its owner. A daily 30 minute brisk walk is necessary to keep your dog healthy. Allow your dog to run freely in the house if the weather is harsh outside.
Since it is a light shedder, it requires frequent brushing and combing. To prevent matting and tangling of its coat, brushing the dog 3-4 times every week is recommended. You can trim your dog’s hair every 4-6 weeks.
Being a relatively healthy breed, it does not suffer from hip and spinal problems like its parent – the Dachshund. However, it is susceptible to infections caused by ticks and fleas because of its thick, shiny coat. Consult a vet to prevent these topical infections.
As Schweenies are quite intelligent, they can be easily trained, provided the right training methods are used. Provide obedience as well as socialization training so that they can learn to remain calm in the presence of strangers when taken to an unfamiliar place. Schweenie puppies should be trained to make them sociable with kids. Enforce strict, distinct methods of training, but do not be harsh with your pet.
Give your Schweenie quality dry foods that are prepared for smaller breeds. Instead of one heavy meal a day, feed it 2-3 times a day in proper amounts to take care of its energy requirements.
- As a great companion dog, Schweenies love to follow its owner. It also makes a great lap dog.
- Their relatively bigger front feet helps them in digging.
- It likes sleeping in a warm and cozy bed, preferably in its owner’s room.
Who do we call to find a puppy?
I would like to know if it when you may have available puppies or young dogs. Thanks for your time, Bonnie McColpin
Are you still looking for sweenies
I just loss my Abby , red Dachshund , age 181/2 years on oct. 1 and I have a Dachshund Shih Tzu mixed baby girl , Diamond , age 3 . I wasn’t looking for another fur baby but she was the smallest little black bar with a white diamond on her chest born on April 1. But no one warned her so we decided to go ahead and get her. And she has been the best dog that I have ever owned. She was housebroken within a week, I guess learning from her big sister. As an owner of a Schweenie I would recommend this mix breed to anyone. She is so gentle with children adults and other dogs and cats

Did you find a puppy you were looking for
Hey I’m julee I have a wiener dog mixed with Shih tux and Chiwawa has anybody heard of this mixture. ? He is a pretty amazing dog, but he doesn’t like when people are very close to me, like my kids snuggling, or he is not cool with my boyfriend of 11 years being close to me, Bruce is my puppy’s name, well he just turned a year, but if my bf and I are alone we can hardly cuddle or kiss, let alone sex. Bruce loves both of us separate.. but i mean… is he acting jealous???? Or is he worried and trying to protect me? Bruce doesn’t hurt n e one when this happens but barks and tries to break it up. One time a while ago my bf and I were making love and I just kept telling brucey yo go get his toy or just kept him away without violence always, I hold him away at arms length, the I lost him and he was humping Tim’s leg. If I keep him in bathroom or something he barks like crazy . I live in apartment building. He listens to me does tricks listens if I repremend him from not listening he listens , but not when it comes to even my own loved trying trying to love me. Sorry I wrote a novel. But any suggestions please?
