Chihuahuas are known for their energetic, yappy, and mistrusting personalities while pugs are considered calmer and more affectionate. Despite these differences, there are a variety of similarities which define the chug’s personality and makes it a good pet.
Chugs are considered very smart which is to be expected given how intelligent both parents are. They are particularly easy to train but the earlier you start the more successful the training will be.
These dogs are little balls of energy who love nothing more than play time. Due to their size, they thrive in both indoor and outdoor spaces when it comes to staying active. So plan for a lot of toys and walks to the park if you want to bring a chug home.
These dogs are absolutely loyal and affectionate with their families. While they are, for the most part, quite peaceful, they can become aggressive when they feel that those they care about are in some form of danger.
Wary of strangers
Chug dogs are also not particularly fond of strangers. They more often than not just avoid them and get aloof around unfamiliar people. However, if they get anxious they could actually attack either through barking, chasing or even through biting. For this reason, it is absolutely important to socialize your chug as early as possible just to get them used to seeing new people and even new pets.
Despite contributions from the peaceful and quiet pug, chug doggies can be very yappy. This happens mainly when the dog feels threatened or uncomfortable in unfamiliar situations. Fortunately, they are smart and can easily be trained to only bark when necessary.
