The nature of Pekingese, recommendations for care and education.


Such a dog as a Pekingese has more in common with a lion than with a dog. Confident and brave, in relation to other dogs and strangers, the Pekingese are unfriendly, and, at the same time, very affectionate when communicating with their masters. Prepare for the fact that the dog will bark at the guests who come to you. Therefore, you need to prepare to wean it from barking, or take a less "gaudy" breed. Of course, everything is not so terrible, and any behavior can and should be controlled by the owner, and therefore one should take seriously the upbringing. In addition to teaching obedience, active care is needed for the hair of this little lion, otherwise it will quickly lose its attractive appearance.

The Pekingese breed is quite playful. Especially repugnant are young individuals, capable of day and night entertain the host with various pranks. With age, the Pekingese calms down, although he never refuses to walk or at least a short game.

In general, Pekingese breed of dogs is not very active, but it is also necessary for it. Be ready to take care of the coat if it becomes dirty after the next walk.
