The Pekingese is commonly referred to as "The Peke". They originated in China over 2000 years ago as a favored and revered Imperial pet. For centuries, only members of the Chinese Imperial Palace could own them. They were considered by the Chinese to be a guardian spirit because of their resemblance to Chinese lions.
The Pekingese is a small, well-balanced breed. They display dignity, a haughty demeanor, and bravery befitting their Chinese origin. They are independent and fearless. The Pekingese is the ultimate aristocrat who expects and demands to be a pampered companion.

Does your Pekingese bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
The Pekingese is sensitive, loving, and extremely affectionate when they choose to be. They are also stubborn and opinionated. They are generally a one-person pet who is deeply devoted to their master. They make excellent watchdogs, as they will give alarm to any unusual noise. They are wary and suspicious of strangers. The Peke does best with older, well-behaved children. They typically do not get along with other pets. They may display jealousy and attempt to show dominance over their master.
The Pekingese requires diligent daily brushing to prevent tangles, knots, and mats. They need to be dry shampooed regularly. Their faces and eyes must be cleaned daily with a damp, soft cloth. They do not tolerate warm or damp climates, and become over-heated or chilled quite quickly. The Peke is prone to breathing problems, eye problems, herniated disc, and dislocated kneecaps. Special care must be given to not overfeed as they gain weight easily.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
The Pekingese is a double-coat breed. The outer-coat is extravagant, long, and straight flowing with profuse feathering. The under-coat is soft and plush in texture. The lavish Pekingese coat is this breeds crowning glory. They come in a wide variety of colors and markings, including parti-color. They are average shedders.
The Pekingese may be difficult to train due to their stoic nature. The crate method is recommended for housebreaking. They will not respond to a harsh, loud, or overly bossy master. They respond best to gentle, consistent, and patient guidance. The Peke requires short sessions of basic obedience and socialization. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Pekingese puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
The Pekingese is able to have the majority of their exercise needs met indoors with play sessions. They benefit from, and greatly enjoy short walks a few times per day. They make excellent apartment or condominium dwellers. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

How much should I charge for studding my Pekingese?



If your Pekingese is AKC registered and from a reputable, ethical breeder, you would have been provided with a 3 to 5 generation pedigree. They should have provided you show photos of the sire and dam and possibly others in his family. The pedigree can also be ordered from AKC, but the breeder should have been proud to provide it along with your guarantee and contract. Since you want to use your boy for stud services, not "studding," I would go back to the breeder for mentoring.
First, have you shown him and does he have any championship points?
How many champions are in his pedigree? What is his breeding, any famous dogs that have won Best in Show or a Pekingese specialty?
How closely does he meet the Pekingese Standard? Did you get several people to evaluate him so that you breed to a female who can improve what he needs improving on in his structure?


It really doesn't change per breed unless it's a Pitbull. Usually studding costs $100-500.


We have worked under the principle to get stud service, one either agrees to pick of the litter or the average selling cost of one of the pups in that litter. If the sire is championship pedigree, the pups will sell for more. Run of the mill AKC pet only pedigrees can run $300 to $800 in the markets around my home.

My Pekingese licks everything, windows, heaters, fans, carpet, feet, etc. what's his deal? He is only 3 1/2 months old.



Dogs explore with their mouths. A positive reinforcement trainer would be able to help you with this behavioral problem.


This cou!d be exploring behavior, but also check out your Pekingese's diet to make sure he\she is getting what they need nutrition wise. Pekingese puppies LOVE to play and not having opposable thumbs they use their mouth. Try sitting in the floor and playing tug of war with an approved toy. No plastic, rubber or stuffed animals with small pieces they could swallow.

Anonymous asked:
Is a coat right for a Pekingese? Are there boots that are good for a Pekingese? If I put a coat on my Peke, does it spoil its ability to keep himself warm by matting down his fur? When he gets real wet is it hard to get him dry? During winter's snow, there are so many places that salt, it seems to bother his feet more than snow. Sometimes he gets little ice balls between his pads.



I would not get a coat for your dog. The Pekingese's fur needs to be able to breathe or matting and other fur problems can occur. Booties would be a good thing for your dog in winter to keep his paws safe.


Pekingese can get hot easily due to their thick long coat. I suggest never covering them due to matting, hotspots, etc.

Contact your vet, he/she can give you a milk replacement.

My 13yr old Pekingese's hair is coming out in clumps. This seems to have just started overnight. If I brush or pull the hair on his hind quarters, it comes right out in clumps. His appetite is normal and mood is jolly. He does not have fleas. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

It could be anything from mange or an allergy. It's time for a vet visit.
