It is a combination of two pure breeds. These two breeds include the Miniature Schnauzer and the Bichon Frise. When trying to establish the characteristics of one’s Chonzer one should first take a look at its ancestry. The temperament, size and characteristics of the parent breeds will determine the traits of the Chonzer.

Chronzer puppies have a distinctive salt and pepper coat, which becomes more defined as they mature.

Chonzer Dog, Breeders, Weight and Temperament

The Chonzer dog breed usually has a pleasing temperament that makes it very much like the Miniature Schnauzer. Amiable and mild as they may be, the Chonzer is extremely protective of its family. Chonzer dogs are also rather energetic and lively and they may attempt to jump a lot, but they can be trained to behave well.

Training your dog well is extremely important and this is best done when the dog is still young.

Socialization training is very important if you want a well adjusted dog. Chonzer dogs are extremely intelligent and are usually very eager to please, so training them is not very difficult. The Chonzer will usually around 10 pounds to 15 inches tall and its weight will range from 24 pounds to about 35 pounds. You need to be a little cautious about the diet for a Chonzer, as they can be sensitive to some foods. One should watch out for skin allergies and get the dog checked by a vet. Once the cause of the allergy is identified, you should take adequate precautions to ensure that the Chonzer does not eat that food.

The Chonzer is not a high maintenance animal. One should always ensure that the ears, eyes and teeth are kept clean. You can try cleaning their eyes with a wet swab or wet piece of cotton. Dog grooming is an important aspect of  the dog care and should be done at least once a week. Some people even shave the coats of their Chonzer occasionally. These dogs are usually very friendly and active and can make great house pets. They are also very friendly with children and other house pets. You need to make sure that your dog gets plenty of attention as Chonzers love to socialize and be near people. Ensure that your Chonzer dog gets plenty of exercise. Apart from the wealth of Chonzer information that is available online, you can also get in touch with Chonzer breeders and veterinarians for more information on the breed.
