The Pekingese is truly a royal pooch! The breed was originally intended as a companion dog for the Chinese Imperial family. Known as the Lion Dog, a traditionally groomed Pekingese does resemble a little lion. Keep this in mind when choosing activities for the breed. Additionally, you'll want to ensure that whatever games and exercise you partake in will not cause this brachycephalic pup to become overly tired or too hot, as this short snout condition can cause the dog to experience breathing problems under those circumstances. Plan for exercise in short intervals several times a day. This spritely companion pooch will enjoy spending time with you in a number of activities.
The Pekingese is a fun, active little dog who is adaptable to almost any activity in which you choose to participate. From your very own living room to the dog park, the Pekingese will find enjoyment in simply spending time with you. Remember to keep the dog from becoming overly tired, and keep lots of water handy.
