History

  • He originated in Peking, China several hundred years ago

Personality and Behavior

  • He's independent, good-natured and affectionate
  • He can have breathing difficulties on hot days or if he physically overexerts himself because of his flat face
  • He carries himself with dignity and an air of self-importance
  • He can be extra difficult to housebreak

Training

  • He's one of the most difficult breeds to train. You will need lots of patience as he is one of the slowest to learn obedience commands.

Shedding

  • He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
