Affen Tzu Activity Requirements
These hybrid dogs take on the temperament of the breeds that parented them. They are known to be curious, affectionate and fearless. They will sometimes even try to stand up to dogs who are much bigger than them, so they should be watched around new, larger dogs. They can also be territorial and protective of their food and toys, and should be monitored around children, as they do not have much patience and may snap if someone comes near their possessions. However, if socialized properly, this breed can do quite well with children and other pets. They are smart but will become stubborn if you let them. Because of this, they can be difficult to train, but with some persistence they can be skilled at not only obedience but trick training as well. Potty training can take some time, but using crates and potty pads might help. You will need to show them that you are the pack leader, and not the other way around, in order to earn their respect. The owner should be firm but still offer rewards when the Affen Tzu performs well. They are affectionate and form great bonds with their family.
