Overview

Named for its butterfly-like ears, expressive and erect, the Papillon is renowned for his elegance and superior intelligence, believed by experts to be the brightest of the toy breeds. A miniature spaniel by heritage, this French lapdog is a friendly and obedient companion, always willing to please his master or mistress, with whom he bonds very closely. The Papillon has gained a devoted following beyond his native France, where he is known as le Epagnuel Nain Continental Papillon, to become a beloved pet in the US and a competitive show and obedience dog. Author F. Michael Truex has written a most informative and entertaining guide, providing all you need to know about the Papillon's history in Europe and the US, the breed's characteristics and standard, as well as puppy selection, feeding, training, preventative health care and behavior. New owners will welcome the author's insight on housebreaking, puppy-proofing and preventing and solving puppy problems. In addition to an authoritative, comprehensive text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive.

After purchasing this book, I didn't need to look any further for the information I needed about the Papillon breed. This book is very comprehensive.

This book is wonderful!! My husband and I will be getting a little papillon in about a month. (she is only 4 wks old now). There is so much information from getting your new puppy, training, everyday care and on up to the senior years. Beautiful pictures, illustrations and so much knowledge. A lot of years and care and experience went into the making of this amazing book. It is well worth the price without question. Enjoy especially if you are new to the Papillon World.
