Overall, the English Toy Papillion is an excellent miniature companion. They have just enough energy to keep things interesting without being overwhelming, and love to be calm and snuggle just enough without being boring. If you have the privilege of owning one of these dogs, then you know how awesome it can be to take them out on activities such as swimming, hiking, or vacationing. Just remember how important it is to bond with them at home as well, with pampering and taking care of their needs (such as trimming their nails, even if they don't like it). This way, you will create a bond that will last a lifetime!
