About the Pekingese
Pekingese are a well-balanced, compact breed of Chinese origin. Even though
they are small dogs, they are courageous, bold and durable. They were bred with flat
faces and bulgy eyes, a heavy, broad front end and crooked, bowed front legs to appear
scary and tough.
Pekingese are affectionate and loyal, intelligent, direct and independent. They
make good watchdogs but do not generally bark a lot. Pekingeses are sophisticated,
regal and dignified, and provide lives full of fun and personality!
Pekingese puppies and adults get along well with children and anyone who treats
them well. If you respect the Pekingese, the Pekingese will respect you. They are
not tolerable of being teased, as they are far too smart for that and will simply
not play that game. They do not do well when mishandled, negatively spoken to or
physically threatened, as they will become defensive and fearful. Pekingese personalities
differ, as all breeds of dog, some are bold and some are shy. I will work with you
to determine the personality that best suits you and your lifestyle.
Pekingese love the outdoors, just hanging out on the deck or under a tree, or
running and chasing each other all day. But they also enjoy lounging in the house,
especially in hot, humid weather. SEE my AIRWAY DISEASE page.
Pekingese may be slightly stubborn, but can be easily trained with positive reinforcement,
and make wonderful companions. Simply let your Pekingese(s) know every day that you
love them, and they will be very willing to do what you want them to.
Pekingese are not very athletic, but they will run and play periodically throughout
the day, usually in 20-30 minute intervals. They enjoy walks, usually only one mile
or shorter. Due to their flat faces (brachycephalic), they do not tolerate heat and
humidity very well. On hot and humid days, I recommend limited time outside and no
long walks. SEE my HEAT STROKE page.
As with other long-backed breeds, the Pekingese is prone to back injuries (herniated
disc), especially if they are allowed to jump up onto objects like your couch, bed,
etc. It is best to avoid this type of activity, especially for the older Peke. SEE
my DISK DISEASE page.

My Pekingese are bred for temperament, conformation and coat quality. My breeding
stock includes dogs with variations of coat quality, coat length and body size. I
have several dogs that are from champion bloodlines and show-quality kennels, and
several dogs that are pet quality.
I offer several coat variations in order to suit different personal preferences.
The coats of my Pekingese range from silky, double-coats to full, profuse double-coats.
The silky coated dogs require much less grooming than the (show-quality) dogs that
have a thick, profuse double-coat.
I breed SMALL TOY Pekingeses, which are between 8-10 pounds full grown, and
I occasionally have SLEEVES, which are under 8 pounds full grown. I also breed the
AVERAGE SIZE Pekingeses, which is between 12-16 pounds, as I recommend the larger
Pekingese for households with small children.
I also choose my breeding dogs with forelegs that are straighter, in an attempt
to avoid the genetic problems associated with moderately bowed legs. Some of my Pekes
love everyone that walks through my door, others are cautious of strangers, but never
My puppies are treated with respect from the moment that they are born. They
are individually handled gently every couple of hours. I cuddle them, talk softly
to them and give them lots of belly rubs. I absolutely NEVER “scruff” my puppies!
I absolutely NEVER yell at my puppies or threaten them in any way, shape or form.
I NEVER strike or hit any of my adults or puppies. My puppies are NEVER dropped,
stepped-on or harmed in any way, shape or form.
All of my puppies are raised under-foot in my house and are a big happy part
of my family. They have a large backyard that I created just for them, it includes
a sandbox, a large dog house, a shady willow tree and two swimming ponds, (or large
bowls of water, as the girls believe), to indulge their natural instincts. They love
to take their toys outside to play with them and I wash all the toys weekly. I currently
work from home, so my dogs are supervised and loved all day long.
My doggie room is air conditioned and heated. Several of my dogs are litter-boxed
and/or puppy pad trained. I do have several crates, each with a comfortable bed,
toys and non-spill water bowls, but lately they are rarely in them. My doggie room
is also equipped with a large grooming table with all necessities, medical supplies
and diagnostic equipment, including a microscope and a suction pump machine. I test
my own fecal samples, ear smears and tear production. I also vaccinate all of my
adults and puppies.
I personally groom my dogs weekly and bathe them once a month, or when they decide
to dig in the back yard! My adults have their teeth professionally cleaned if necessary,
from every 6 months to once every 2-3 years.
My Backyard is for the dogs! Complete with a
Dog House, Willow Tree & Sandbox.
