Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Papillon's Country of
origin is a mystery. The dog is one of the
oldest breeds and its history can be traced
back to 700 years. The word 'Papillon' means
'butterfly dog' in French. The dog got its
name because of its big butterfly ears. The
drop-eared variety of the breed is known as
the Phalene. The dog also appeared in the
paintings of the Renaissance period and was
favored by the royal families across the European
Continent. The credit of perfecting the breed
goes to the French breeders.

How to take care
of the breed as a Papillon Puppy?
Papillon pups need adequate
rest. The pups are to be fed with nutrient-rich
dog food. Pups are prone to accidents, so
they should be prevented from loitering around
unhindered with the help of a a spacious crate.
Vaccination and de-worming schedules should
be strictly ahered to.
Harsh chemicals, electrical cords
should be kept out of their reach and they should
be allowed to play at intervals. Hygeine is a must.
Chewable toys would dissuade him from chewing up
furniture during teething.
Severe hypoglycemia may even be
fatal for pups. Hypoglycemic pups should be treated
with doses of karo syrup or Nutri-cal and a vet
should be consulted if the condition persists.
Papillons are easy to train because
of their intelligence and obedience. These dogs
should be taught to obey commands like, 'sit', 'go',
'heel', 'stay', 'no' etc. They are often trained
as watch dogs and therapy dogs. Paillons should
be crate-trained. They should be trained to stay
in their crates until they are commanded otherwise.
They should be taken to a selected spot every day
after each regular meal. However, accidents happen
and pups are never to be ill-treated. Dogs thrive
on positive reinforcement and they should be praised
after successful completion of each task.
How active is the breed
They do not require too much of
an exercise and are active indoors. Short walks
are of real help. Papillons are prone to knee joint
How much exercise does
the dog need at every stage of its life?
Puppies should be prevented from
over exercising. They might sustain crippling injuries.
Moreover, old dogs might also develop similar complications.
They need daily brushing to prevent
matting and should be shampooed when necessary.
Harsh chemicals are to be avoided. Anal glands should
be expressed, preferably by a vet, and nails to
be clipped and ears cleaned on a regular basis.
Owners should buy proper grooming equipment if they
do not wish to involve a professional groomer which
might prove to be too expensive in the long run.
The breed suffers from genetic
disorders like Patellar Luxation, Progressive Retinal
Atrophy, Periodontal, Liver Shunt, Deafness, Epilepsy
