DESCRIPTION

A Peek-A-Pom is a hybrid that is a cross-breed of a Pekingese and a Pomeranian and may demonstrate any combination of traits from those two breeds. Hybrids have become very popular in the past few years. They play a big role in the current designer dog trend. The experimentation of these hybrid or designer dogs has not been recognized by the American Kennel Club or Canadian Kennel Club.

TEMPERAMENT

Affectionate, brave, and loyal, the Peekapom is outgoing and confident. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. Boredom and loneliness will lead to destructive behavior and incessant barking. They do best in homes with older, considerate, well-mannered children. The Peekapom does well with dogs and non-canine pets they have been raised with. They are wary and suspicious of strangers and are quick to alert their family to visitors or out of the ordinary sounds.

GROOMING

Daily brushing is recommended to prevent matting and tangling for the Peekapom. Bathing should be done when necessary; dry shampooing will suffice. Dental hygiene is important to prevent early tooth loss. They may be prone to such health issues as eye problems, luxating patella, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, and hypoglycemia.

HEALTH

They may be prone to such health issues as eye problems, luxating patella, hip dysplasia, epilepsy, and hypoglycemia.

EXERCISE

The Peekapom is suited for apartment living. They are relatively active indoors. Peekapom's enjoy family play sessions, securely leashed walks, and off-lead play time in a fenced yard.

TRAINING

Early socialization and obedience are recommended. The Peekapom may be willful, stubborn, and difficult to housebreak. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency.
