The Papillon And Phalene Thread

3,494 posts in this topic

I know I'm not the only one here with papillons!

Bring out some pictures, show results, grooming tips and stories!

This is Blaze, my little show man. He's 3.5 and we've just started showing and have joined our breeder in the ring in Darwin.

This is Minka, my naughty little girl. She came from a breeder in Albany and is still a baby at 2.5 yrs. She's desexed and living in the lap of luxury.

They love each other a lot, Minka gets upset when Blaze goes to shows and training without her, so she's going to be a spectator at the next show!

Showing the love:

Heres my little bed bug "Dream"

Currently in whelp with 10 days to go.

She is not happy about it either as she cant jump where she wants to as her centre of balance is off, so she looks with her big brown eyes for assistance to get where she wants to be.

Still adores her car rides and is into belly rubs in a big way atm.

A Papillon is a butterfly dog if you look at them from behind with there ears and fringing it looks like the wings of a butterfly.

The Phalene is the moth version. They have drop ears.

Both are the french words for there respective names.

The phalene is believed to be the original little Continental Toy Spaniel which is where the breed originated from.

Finally! :thumbsup:

Ive been wanting someone to start this thread, i cant because i dont have a pap.....yet :rofl:

I am looking at the lines of them can anyone recommend ones that are heavier and a little bigger then the norm?

Looking at it from a flyball perspective, we have a little pap that is training with us at the moment only weighs 1.8kg so doesnt trigger the box because he isnt heavy enough at the moment, is he just small or the right size? I know they are average of 25cm but no idea of weight.

Should say i am looking at lines because i would like to get one very soon :thumbsup:

My girl normally weighs 2.6 kg soaking wet. And she is very typical of the size of a correct bitch

So basically the little guy i am talking about is not the proper weight?

Do admit he does seem very very small even for a Papillon compared to some i have seen but its hard to compare when they arent next to each other :thumbsup:

Sure sounds like he is small for the breed.

Dream definitely fits in size wise when shown tho there are a few who are smaller and some that are bigger.

I think the boy i have who is just a pet weighs about 3 kgs and he is solid and a little bigger than her.

Remember Paps are supposed to be dainty not heffalumps!!

beautiful dogs, thanks for starting this thread!

I was told many years ago that they are very very bright dogs and excel in obedience. Is this right? I didn't realise they were that tiny though :thumbsup:

gorgeous, more pictures please!

Hi Onslows Mum

Papillons are extremly bright!!

There are a few of them around with some amazing titles before and after there names.

They learn quickly and have clever tricks up there sleeves as well.

They can also be huge clowns.

They do need to be well socialised tho as many treat them like babies and have resulting issues.

My Dream is an absolute social butterfly with people and other dogs. She trots up to any and sundry and demands attention. She follows me everywhere and knows quite a few words. I may do some obedience work with her next year we will see what happens.

Wylie, we need puppy piccies when Dream has her pups! She's a pretty girl.

tollersowned, Blaze is 'finer built' than Minka, he is about 3kg. I think bitches can be a little heavier, but most paps at a healthy weight should between 2-4.5 kg.

Yep, Phalenes are thought to be the 'original' Continental Toy Spaniel, and when the Papillon ear type appeared they suddenly became more popular.

If anyone's looking for a good breed book, I'd recommend The Complete Papillon, by Carolyn and David Roe (from Sunshoo Papillons in the UK).

Am I allowed to post my Pap X Chi (rescue). He is now quite old, adopted over 5 years ago and thought to be about 10 at that time - a foster failure, but I wanted him to be a dog, not a toy. As you can see, he loves his bones, runs out in storms and loves to cuddle. He has a very Chi face, but the big Papillion ears. Here is Tirra:

LOL

You will all have to wait for photos just like me.

Dream is going to a friends to whelp as i am not very comfortable in whelping tiny little things and we are about to move and i dont need her stressing and getting under foot.

She will be in very capable and safe hands and I am sure will do well.

I hope that my friend has a camera so she can send me pics.

Thanks for all the info guys!!

I was getting a little worried as this guy said that his dog is the average weight and as i couldnt find the breed weight anywhere i was rethinking actually getting one.

They are definately smart, hoping to do flyball agility, obedience and maybe a little showing with mine when i get one :rofl:
