Papillon dogs are purebreds who are part of the toy group. They’re known to be happy, alert, and friendly. Initially bred to be companions for noblewomen, this dog breed makes an excellent family companion today. If you want to look further into Papillon puppies, then keep reading.

Where To Get Papillon Puppies

You can find this dog breed in an animal shelter or a rescue organization. However, it could be a mixed breed, or it might be an older age. Still, you’ll gain a furry friend while saving a dog’s life since most of those dogs were found as strays or were abandoned or surrendered by their previous owners. Deicuorid…

However, if you truly want to get a Papillon puppy, you can go through a reputable breeder. A good place to start your search is the AKC Marketplace. Since Papillons are purebred, they’re recognized by the American Kennel Club. Most ethical breeders will be registered with the AKC.

In addition, you can tell a breeder is good because they’ll do the following:

  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person and allow you to meet the parents and the litter
  • Have health documents ready for you to take home
  • Be able to answer all of your questions about the process, the breed, the breeder, the parents, or the puppies

If you find a breeder who doesn’t do the above, you probably came across a puppy mill or a backyard breeder. These breeders should be avoided because they don’t breed the dogs in healthy or safe conditions. Also, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding good homes for the puppies.

The Cost

The price of a puppy can vary, depending on the breeder’s location, the breed’s popularity, the puppy’s coat color, age, or lineage, and more. However, the average cost of a Papillon puppy is between $1,000 and $2,000.

Appearance

Since Papillons are part of the toy group, they’re small dogs. For instance, they can grow eight to 11 inches tall and weigh between five to ten pounds.

Also, they have a medium silky coat that can come in many coat colors and markings. However, some of the most common colors are the ones listed below:

  • White & Black
  • White & Lemon
  • White & Red
  • White & Sable
  • White, Black & Tan

Temperament

This dog breed was initially bred to be a companion to royalty and other noblewomen. So, you can be sure that they’re great family dogs even today. For instance, they’re loyal and affectionate with their family members. They also love humans in general, so they’re excellent with young children and welcome strangers with open arms. In addition, they’re okay with meeting other dogs but might need some time to warm up to them. Finally, Papillons are used to being the only dog around and love the attention.

Also, this dog breed is adaptable to any lifestyle, though they do prefer a quieter area. They can do fine in an apartment or a bigger house with a fenced-in yard. However, they’re vocal dogs. Papillons love to hear themselves talk, so if you’re in an apartment, then be prepared for your neighbors to complain about how loud your dog is.

Luckily, this pooch is easy to train. They’re eager to please when it comes to their owners, so you can limit the barking if needed. In addition, they have high energy levels and love to play. So, be sure you have plenty of time every day to give them ample physical activity, playtime, and mental stimulation. Vaoiz200…

Papillon Puppies– Veterinary Needs

When your dog is a puppy during its first year, you’ll want to bring them to the vet a couple of times during the year. This way, you can track their growth and development. Also, you can keep them up to date with their shots and boosters. Then, every year after that, you can bring them to the vet once a year for their annual checkup.

Papillons, in particular, can have certain health issues. For instance, they’re prone to the following:

  • Patellar Luxation
  • Seizures
  • Open Fontanel
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
  • Allergies
  • Intervertebral Disc Disease (IVDD)
  • von Willebrand’s Disease

With proper care through diet and exercise, your Papillon has an average lifespan of about 14 to 16 years. Felix…

Diet

Luckily, Papillons aren’t picky with their food. Due to their high energy levels, something that’s rich in protein will be good for them. However, you’ll want to get the food approved by your vet and keep it appropriate for their breed size, age, weight, and metabolism.

Otherwise, you can give your doggo high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food.

Papillon Puppies – Grooming

This dog breed requires little grooming. You’ll want to bring them to a professional grooming salon once a month to give them a good cleaning, but that’s it. They shed a little, and you don’t want their silky fur to get tangled and matted, so daily brushing is ideal.

Also, be sure to keep up with brushing their teeth, trimming their nails, and cleaning their ears regularly.
