Overview
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.
Character
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.
Temperament
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.
Care
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.
Coat
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.
Training
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.
Activity
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Pekingese 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.

How much to charge for Studding my Pekingese? Want to Stud out my Male Pekingese, just don't know how much to charge for studding him

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 one 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 ?

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

Is a coat right for a Peke? And boots, are there boots that are good for a Peke? If I put a coat on my Peke, does it spoil it's ability to keep himself warm by matting down his fur? When he gets real wet is hard to get him dry. And during winter's snow, there is 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.

My 13yr old Peke's hair coming out in clumps. No fleas. Just began. This seems to have just started overnight. If I brush or pull the hair on his hind qtrs., it comes right out in clumps. His appetite is normal and mood jolly. He does not have fleas. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

If your dog has anxiety/fear, then it is time to work with a positive reinforcement trainer to help your dog calm down.

The Pekingese breed is known to be good with kids, but kids can be over-whelming, so make sure that the dog has a crate or safe space to be to get away from the kids.

You can bathe your dog every two weeks with a diluted shampoo, or once a month with normal dog shampoo.

Allergies for dogs can be in the air or in the food. Work with your vet to find out which type of allergy your dog has. If your dog is not getting better with Claritan, then it most likely is in the food. A grain-free, high quality dog food is the best thing to feed your dog. Some brands to look at are Acana, Origjn, Taste of the Wild, Life Mates, Now and Go!
