Just bought an 8 week Chion little girl yesterday with my two teenage boys. Anything we can do to be sure she doesn't become aggressive to any of the three of us? She has a very sweet temprament right now.

    My biggest piece of advice would be to just make sure to keep on top of her discipline. If she starts acting up discipline her right away so that she knows what she can and can't do and forms good habits while she is young. If you let her get away with bad behaviors (nipping, barking, etc.) she will grow into an adult doing these things and will be harder to change her.

Adopted a 9 week old female Chion on Saturday.... she has quickly caught on to going to the bathroom outside. She takes a 2 hour nap after she eats and wakes up ready to go potty outside. She refuses to use the potty pads inside the house. I am teaching her to sit. She is doing good with it but she can't follow commands when there are a lot of people around due to her excitement.

    So cool that she's so well potty trained. I've never had a small dog, but from what I understand, some can be rather challenging to train for that. All in all, she sounds like a super pet and a lot of fun.

Wow, amazing the difference in just one day. Our new puppy Chion came home sweet and fairly docile, and is apparently getting very comfortable in her new home. She was extremely rambunctious but also very aggressive with nipping and biting, almost uncontrollably. Any suggestions on how to discipline aside from a good stern 'NO' each time?

    Sounds like a cute and energetic puppy. I would start with love and consistent gentle discipline. But most of all, she's a puppy, so I would say patience and giving her plenty of time to get used to her new home and to grow up.

We have a male Chion that will turn 7 in May. He is a real joy. Very loving and extremely smart. Loves to cuddle and sleep with his mama and daddy right between us on his back with his head on the pillow. He loves to travel especially to go camping. I do not let him off the leash unless he is in an enclosed area because he loves to chase birds, squirrels and cats. He is ok around older children but does not like younger children and tends to growl and snap at them if they approach him.

I have an eight-month-old male Chion and he is the most lovable dog I have ever had. He got parvo three weeks after I got him even though he had been vaccinated and survived after five days in ICU. He loves everyone and I have him at my store with me every day. He loves his three 20+ pound cats, one in particular. He is a joy and when I mate him in a few months with a Chion who has the same father different mother, I am going to keep one of the litter. He's very fussy about food and pants a lot in a car, but other than that, he is snuggly and lovable and loves kids and people in general. I think having him around people all day has been good for him. He loves to play and in the yard it is impossible to catch him when he's running in circles. He is very very smart!! I love him a lot as he has stolen my heart!!

My family and I inherited a chion last year from one of my husbands friend who could no longer keep her. What a blessing! She has been an absolute joy to have and is just the sweetest little thing ever. She loves everyone, including children. She adjusted really well to our home with three animals already living here....two cats and a lab/beagle mix. She wasn't fond of them at first, but it only took her a short while to get used to them and she adores her canine sister. I would reccommend softer food for this breed though, because they have such small teeth and they tend to have issues with their teeth and gums. She happens to love snuggling under blankets too, so you need to make sure before you sit doen on a crumpled up blanket, she isn't all hunkered down taking a nap.

We have a 4 year old female that is the sweetest little dog that thinks everyone is here to be her friend. She ignores other animals on our walks but wants to meet everyone, especially children. She is a little barky even at noises she should know. All in all she is 4.5 pounds of happiness.

    When you are starting from scratch - quickest way is to Goggle        Chion Breeders.   You will come up with many - all over the US but possibly one close to you.

Just adopted 4 year old Chion. He hates being alone. When we leave we put him in kennle is this ok? He barks alot and shakes! Do they need hair cuts?

    Many don't like being alone.  Try leaving an unwashed t-shirt and socks in the kennel with him.  They don't need hair cuts but they do need grooming - which in some cases is a hair cut.  If you don't keep them brushed regularly, they mat and it gets hard to get the mats out.  Shaking is part of the nature of a chihauhua - which is 50% of the Chion mixure.
