Papillon Expert Advice

Trainer
Teach your Papillon a cue, like “hup, hup” or “Gotcha!,” for a quick pickup and practice it often so that you and your dog are ready in case of an emergency. ”Safety is different than coddling. When you are out with your Papillon and you honestly believe it’s in danger, then by all means pick the dog up.” – Certified Pet Dog Trainer Carol Stewart of Geensburg, Pennsylvania (from Popular Dogs: Papillons)

Veterinarian
“As far as I am aware, [Papillons] as a whole have no metabolic deficiencies or other idiosyncrasies that would suggest an increased risk [with anesthesia]. Having said that, the pursuit of perfection in a particular dog breed involves a degree of inbreeding, so it’s possible a particular line or strain within a breed might have problems related to anesthesia. Also, any individual animal could have a greater risk associated with a disease they might have.” – Peter J. Pascoe, DVSc, professor of in the department of Surgical and radiological Sciences at the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary medicine (from Popular Dogs: Papillons)

Breeder
“The Papillon is a robust, energetic and intelligent breed. They are the top performance dog from the Toy Group in agility and obedience, and many Papillons also have earned titles in tracking and herding.” – Elaine S. Zech breeder from Roseburg Oregon (from Popular Dogs: Papillons)

Grooming
The Papillon has a long flowing coat. Compare to a Yorkshire Terrier, Shih Tzu or Pomeranian, the coat is easy to maintain, but compared to a breed like the smooth coated Chihuahua or Miniature Pinscher, it’s considerable more work. In truth, the Papillon requires a moderate amount of grooming to maintain good condition. – Marion Lane, former professional groomer from New York City (from Popular Dogs: Papillons)
