Don’t be fooled by the delicate frame of the Papillon. This is more than a lap dog. The Papillon is one of the smartest of all the toy breeds. This breed is friendly, alert, and active. It might snuggle on your lap for a bit, but before long, the Papillon will be looking for something interesting to do. Like many small dogs, the Papillon has a bit of a stubborn streak. However, if you can make training worth its while (have high-value rewards), then the dog will learn quickly. Teach this cute little dog a variety of fun tricks and you will impress your friends.
