The Pekingese will quickly become overweight if overfed. The Pekingese is disinclined to take walks and although it doesn’t need much exercise, it will stay in better health if given regular sessions of play activity.

It is important to get your puppy accustomed to the leash. It is advisable to use a harness (instead of a collar) and a retractable leash. You cannot be overly bossy with Pekingese, but it does need basic training to be a well-adjusted companion. Praise your dog when it does something right, but do not punish harshly when it does something wrong.

Long, straight, double-coated with a coarse top coat, thick undercoat and profuse mane and feathered tail. Daily combing and brushing is essential. Dry shampoo regularly.

Females shed the undercoat when in season. This dog is an average shedder.

Problemas de Salud

The Pekingese tends to catch colds very easily. It is prone to herniated disks, dislocated kneecaps so be careful when exercising. Trichaiasis (lashes growing inwards toward the eyeballs) can be a rare issue. Breathing problems and heart problems are also fairly common and any symptoms should lead to an immediate vet visit. To minimize the risk of your Pekingese developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a puppy from a reputable breeder.

Condiciones de Vida

Although the Pekingese may be recommended for apartment living, future owners must be aware of its low heat tolerance. It may not survive in warmer regions, and must be kept indoors with air conditioning during warm spells. It’s best to have it sleeping indoors.
