Papillons are inquisitive and fun loving refusing to believe that they are small dogs. They like nothing better than a romp with a ball, or a walk in the country where they can chase a butterfly, a bird or a squirrel and investigate the world around them. They are long-lived, remarkably resistant to disease, and retain their playfulness right into old age. Their acute hearing makes them excellent watchdogs and they will soon let you know when a stranger is around. However, they are not persistent barkers and once visitors are inside the house and the greetings are over, they will return to their favorite spot and lie down quietly.
Papillons are naturally eager to please and are devoted to their owners, preferring to have them within sight at all times. Their exceptional intelligence and easy trainability have placed them at the top of the Toy Breeds in Obedience and agility. Their happy manner of working has endeared them to the public. They are “naturals” for training as Hearing Aid dogs and in Pet Therapy programs. For versatility there are few breeds to match them; for loyal loving companions, they are second to none.
