Temperament

Tricolor Papillon Puppy picture

The Papillon is a friendly, intelligent dog. Steady and silent. A lively, vivacious and charming, gentle and affectionate dog. They are playful and amusing but can also be calm, patient, gentle and dignified. This breed loves to be cuddled but also likes to romp outdoors.

Papillons are obedient and are not yappers. Can be trained to perform small tricks. They can also be difficult to housebreak, but are in general easy to train otherwise. Papillons do best with older, considerate children. They can be a bit dog-aggressive. Good with cats when they are raised with them from puppyhood.

Colors

Coat

Tricolor Papillon Puppy picture

They have no undercoat, but a long, abundant, flowing and silky in texture. Daily combing and brushing of the long, silky, single coat is important and fairly straightforward. These dogs are usually clean and odorless. Bathe or dry shampoo when necessary. Keep the nails clipped and have the teeth cleaned regularly because they tend to accumulate tartar. They are average shedders and do not matt or tangle.

Health Issuess

Health Issues

This breed is usually very healthy. Sometimes prone to problems with the kneecaps (patella) in the hind legs, this can sometimes be corrected by surgery. Also fontanel (an opening at the top of the skull similar to a baby human’s “soft spot”). It sometimes corrects itself but if it does not, the dog needs to be protected. To minimize the risk of your Papillon developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable Continental Toy Spaniel breeder.

Living Environment

Although they can be good city dogs, they are sometimes not good apartment dogs, because the dog has a strong instinct to protect their property, and many will bark excessively at nearby noises, not making the distinction between casual noises and those worthy of a real alarm.
