CHIMATION DOG

History

The Chimation is a hybrid of two purebreds, the Chihuahua and the Dalmatian. It even has the distinctive dots inherited from its parents. Since a little is only known about its history, its characteristics are mostly related with its parents.

Temperament & Personality

The dog thrives on human companionship and love to become a part of every family activity. They are compatible with children and elders if properly managed. Avoid disturbance while they are sleeping and eating. Due to their high-spirited nature, they may even attack small kids. Their protective and alert nature makes them excellent watchdogs. They suffer from separation anxiety if they are left alone for an extended period.

Exercise

The breed is lively like its Dalmatian parent, so it requires enough amount of activity and playtime to keep itself fit both mentally and physically. They enjoy leash walking, wandering around the yard and playing games with family members, but also leave them alone to play for some period each day.

Grooming

As it sheds all year round, it requires brushing thrice a week with a rubber curry brush to keep off its dead hair. Bathe them four to five times a year as frequent bathing can take away natural oil from the skin. Clean its teeth twice a week and keep a check of its ears to prevent infection.

Health Problems

This dog has a risk of developing low blood sugar, hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, urinary tract disorders, skin allergies, and heart disease. The pooch should be given vaccinations including CPV (Parvovirus), Rabies, CDV (Distemper), CPIV (Parainfluenza) and Adenovirus-2.

Training

The headstrong and stubborn nature of the breed makes teaching very difficult, so it requires firm, consistent and patient trainer. Harsh and rough voice can make them more resistant, so it is better to use positive techniques like rewarding and praising.

Feeding

As they suffer from urinary tract infection, avoid purine in their food. Provide them with ½ to 1½ cups of high-quality dry kibbles every day split into two meals.
