What are Papillons like?
Papillon has long and silky hair. They have no undercoat, which means they can get cold easily. This is one dog that needs a jacket or a sweater in the winter. Please be sure to keep them warm.
The Papillon is lively, intelligent, and friendly. They are usually not shy or aggressive. They can be energetic and playful, and they can also be calm and gentle. Papillon loves to cuddle. They may look small and dainty, but they are tougher than they look. They love human companionship.
They are highly trainable. And unless they sense danger, they don’t bark a lot. It may take longer to house train a Papillon puppy. They love to do tricks and follow your commands, that’s why they are so easy to train. You can also socialize them to get along with other pets in your family, including your cat.
