Papillons are smalls dog with big personalities. Their visual trademark is their ears that look like butterfly wings and their silky smooth coat.
They may look like lap dogs but they sure aren't. In fact, Papillons are quite the opposite - they love to run and are very fast at jumping over any hurdles in their way. They don't shy away from cold or the water and despite their tiny statute, they are quite hardy dogs that love adventure.
Papillons are great with other animals and kids and their size would make him a good apartment dog, except that they like to make a lot of noise! They are very alert and any noise they hear needs to be commented on. They also enjoy lots of free space to rumble around in.
Of course they also love cuddles and affection. This is a bright little breed - Papillons will learn just by listening and will tilt their head from one side to the other when you say things to them. For cuteness and adorability factor this breed scores 11 out of 10!
They are easy to train and if you are into trick training you won't be disappointed. Papillons have also become a favourite breed for dog agility training. Daily outings are a must with your Papillon.
