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.
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.
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.
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.
