Overview
The Affenpinscher originated in Germany in the 16th century. They are commonly referred to as the "monkey dog" due to their physical appearance and delightful attitude. Their strong character and sporting instinct made this breed particularly useful in destroying rats and mice. The primary function of the Affenpinscher today is that of an amiable companion.
Character
The Affenpinscher is a balanced and sturdy breed. They are a combination of charm and spunk, with a great deal of courage and boldness. They are capable of amazing dexterity and agility. They possess thinking and reasoning process, and will on occasion display sensitivity and gentleness. The Affenpinscher is often considered the "class clown".
Temperament
Affenpinschers are highly inquisitive and quick-witted. They are mischievous and playful, affectionate and amusing. They get along well with other pets they have been raised with. They are not recommended for young children as this breed has a tendency to guard and protect their food and toys. They will become aggressive and fearless toward anything or anyone they perceive as a threat. They love to entertain and expect to be entertained. The Affenpinscher enjoys being with their family.
Care
The Affenpinscher requires minimal grooming. Their harsh coat must never be clipped short as this will ruin it for many years. Brushing and combing weekly is a must, plucking done when necessary. They will occasionally have stray hairs that grow in the corners of the eyes that cause irritation; they should be removed immediately. The Affenpinscher is prone to slipped stifle, open fontanel, and respiratory problems.
Coat
The Affenpinscher has a coat of dense shaggy hair, which is rough and harsh. It is 1" in length on the shoulders and body. The head, neck, chest, stomach, and legs have a longer and less harsh coat. Once they reach maturity this breed has a mane of hair at the neck area, longer hair on the head, eyebrows, and a beard. Their coat serves as protection in extreme weather conditions. They are low shedding. The coat comes in various colors such as black, gray, silver, and red.
Training
Affenpinschers may be difficult to housetrain. The crate training method is recommended. They display an authoritarian attitude, so they require firmness and consistency. They are quick to learn, but do not respond to repetition. The Affenpinscher does best with a variety of tasks so they do not become bored.
Activity
The Affenpinscher is active and energetic. Their exercise needs can be met with indoor play sessions on a regular basis. They do well as apartment or condominium dwellers provided they are taken for daily leashed walks. They also enjoy a chance to run, so a small fenced yard is ideal. The Affenpinscher tends to climb and bark so supervision is required in the outdoor setting.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Affenpinscher puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Is the Affenpinscher breed good for children with allergies Are they allergy friendly

1 Comment

If your children have allergies, the best thing to do is to have your children interact with an Affenpinscher to make sure they do not have a reaction to the dog. People can have two different types of allergies to animals, either they are allergic to the dander, meaning they should be allergic to all mammals, or they are allergic to the protein in the dog's saliva that becomes air-born when they breath. If the latter is the case, having your children interact with an Affenpinscher will give you an idea if they are allergic to the dog breed or not.

how to treat dry itchy skin

Head and Shoulder's shampoo is perfect for dog's dry/itchy skin. Just like with humans, it works almost instantly. You don't need much, just a dab will do. Doing this once to twice a month, depending on the dog will keep your dog's skin flake free and moisturized.

We adopted a 2yr old Affenpinscher and we have 2 problems 1. he marks in the house even after long walks (we have used srays to remove the scent). and 2. He barks aggresively at other dogs (it's harmless, but embarassing). Other that that we love him! Any suggestions?

Neuter him and that will make worlds of difference. Try a belly band. Affenpinscher's are known for being scrappy with other dogs.

His usual grab anything he can get his teeth on to eat has vanished and I've begun putting a high quality wet food into his senior dry foot to get him to eat. This has only been occurring for the past 2 weeks. What is the lifespan? What special needs will be need as he ages?

Take your Affenpinscher to the vet more often. Arthritis is common in older dogs.

How do you get your Affenpinscher to stop barking?

I'm on my fourth Affenpinscher and all dogs bark...I'd suggest firm but gentle discouragement. Good luck!

My Ruby, a 4 year old Affie, stopped barking completely with the minor threat of a spray of water from a cheap dollar store spray bottle, such as you would use to mist or spray plants or your hair to rewet it for styling. She's seen our cat get sprayed when she does something naughty, such as climing up the Cockatiels cage, so she knows why it is used and that it's for bad behavior. Even as smart as our Ruby is, it only took about 3 weeks for her to stop barking if she heard a fly sneeze...which is what my husband said she was always barking at. :)
