Papillon Grooming and Breed Care

Papillon Temperament

The Papillon is a very intelligent toy dog that is quick to learn and eager to please. These dogs excel in obedience and agility training. These dogs make excellent companion dogs and family pets. Although elegant and graceful, the Papillon also has plenty of energy and loves to play. These small dogs have bags of personality and character, and also have plenty of stamina and enthusiasm for everything they do. An excellent tracker dog, the Papillon loves to work and also enjoys getting involved with family activities and fun. This is not a breed for those that do not have the time to dedicate to interacting with their pets. The Papillon is an alert dog with plenty of spirit, and is an ideal choice for active owners. These intelligent and keen dogs make obedience training easy and fun, although owners will need to exercise assertiveness and confidence in order to try and combat the Papillon's bossy and possessive streak. He is a quick learner and easy to train, making him ideal for the more inexperienced dog owner as well as for those with experience. However, he can be difficult to housebreak.

  

A keen barker, this breed makes an effective watchdog but can get a little noisy! The Papillon will get along fine with older, gentler children. He is not suited to younger or more boisterous children because his tiny size means that he can get injured easily. These dogs will also be friendly and welcoming around strangers, and tend to get along fine with other small dogs and cats, although he may try and stand up to larger dogs. Some dogs can be confident and sociable, but others may be more timid and nervous. Early socialization can help to promote a stable temperament and attitude. The Papillon is a very versatile pet, and is suited to apartment living as well as living in a house.

Papillon Appearance

The Papillon is a very elegant, dainty creature, with a wide-eyed, innocent expression. This tiny dog has a fabulous, flowing, long coat, which has a silky texture. The coloring of the Papillon is mainly white, with black, lemon, sable, red, or black and tan patches. The fringed ears of the Papillon may droop or stand erect, and he has a lustrous plumed and feathered tail. The Papillon weighs in at around 5-10 pounds, and the height of these dogs is around 9-12 inches.

Papillon Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Papillon are not overly excessive, and you can keep his coat in good condition by brushing twice weekly. You will need to increase this during the periods when he is shedding more heavily. You should ensure that the hair around his bottom is kept trimmed for hygiene reasons, and you should also check that his ears are clean and dry to reduce the risk of infections. Also keep the hair around the pads of the feet trimmed.

Papillon Health Problems and Life Expectancy

The Papillon has a long life expectancy of around 15-18 years, and there are a number of health issues that are linked to this breed. This includes eye problems, heart problems, liver disorders, PRA, luxating patella, anemia, epilepsy, and sensitivity to drugs and chemicals. The parents of the Papillon puppy should have CERF certificates.

Papillon History

The Papillon originates from France, and his name translates to 'butterfly'. This breed enjoys a long history that dates back to the fourteenth century, and were introduced to the United States in around the nineteenth century.
