Some FAQs about Papillon​

The papillon is a brilliant, energetic little dog whose unique appearance has made her a royal favorite for centuries.

Papillons are alert dogs with keen senses. That means they not only sound the alarm when people are actually at the door, but also when people are walking along the street or puttering in the garden next door. In other words, excessive barking can occur and must be dealt with. This is a common trait in most toy breeds.

The Papillon, which has an average lifespan of 13 to 15 years, is susceptible to some health problems, such as dental problems that are particular to small breeds, patellar luxation, and seizures

While papillons can make excellent family dogs, great care should be taken around very small children. Papillons are hardier than they look, but they are still very small-boned dogs and can easily be hurt by children playing too rough.

The Papillon dog breed is amongst the smartest and most trainable of the toy breeds. They are indeed little dynamiting in small packages. What is this? Because of their excellent trainability, they excel in competitions, particularly in areas of obedience and agility.

They love children, but you will need to ensure that the child understands how to handle the dog—papillons are easily injured and may defend themselves if mistreated or mishandled by a youngster.

Papillons will alert you to the approach of strangers or noises that concern them by barking. This can be a problem if you live in an apartment where there is lots of activity nearby. Although they will bark to alert you, they are generally not aggressive towards strangers.

Papillons are great for first-time owners because they’re extremely intelligent and, therefore, relatively easy to train. However, training must begin early. Take a gentle yet firm approach. Papillons need to know their place in the ‘pack’ hierarchy or they may try to assume the role of top dog.

Being small, they require less food than larger dogs. They have no doggy odor. Papillons adapt as well to a city apartment as to a country estate.

Also known as the Continental Toy Spaniel, this little dog makes a charming companion. Often portrayed in European court paintings (the breed was a particular favourite of Marie Antoinette), the Papillon has eye-catching “butterfly-wing” ears and distinctive facial markings. A drop-eared variety is known as the Phalène (French for “moth”). These dogs love human companionship and enjoy plenty of play and exercise. They require early socializing with other dogs and strangers. The long, fine, silky coat needs daily grooming to prevent mats forming.

The Breed History 

Dwarf or toy spaniels of Italy and Spain were the likely breed progenitors. The origins of the word Spaniel derive from the presumed origin country, Spain. Since the 16th century the Papillon (French for butterfly) has been depicted in paintings. The early breed characteristic of the drooping ears was gradually replaced by the popular modern day “butterfly ears” (erect, feathered and obliquely set). Both types of ears are still found, even within a single litter. The drop eared variety is termed Phalene. Much of the Continental Toy Spaniel (syn. Phalene) breed development occurred in France and Belgium. The AKC accepted the breed in 1935.
