I’m interested in the Papillon breed. If all goes well, I will purchase a Papillon puppy from a reputable breeder sometime in the future. But before I make any decisions, I have a few questions to ask the Papillon owners/breeders.
1) How much does a Papillon shed? Do some colors shed more than others?
2) On a scale of 1-10, how much does a Papillon bark (with 1 being not at all and 10 being excessive barking)? With proper training, how much can the barking be reduced? Also, what’re some ways to reduce barking?
3) Is it true that Papillon are hard to housebreak?
4) Does Papillon get along well with small pets?
5) Is Papillon suitable for apartment living in general?
6) How many times does a Papillon have to be walked daily? What times?
7) Finally, is Papillon a great companion dog to have?
Only serious inputs from Papillon owners/breeders, please.
