The Papi-Poo is an incredibly adorable toy-sized designer crossbreed whose parents are the Papillon and the Toy Poodle. Also referred to as the Papidoodle, these dogs are energetic, carefree, and as affectionate as it gets.
Training the Papi-Poo should be very easy. They’re very clever and pick up on commands and tricks quickly. They do best when put on a strict schedule, such as taking them for a walk after a meal and before bedtime. Crate training is also recommended as these tiny dogs do become attached to their owners and will develop separation anxiety if left alone for too long.
The Papi-Poo is not a shy or aggressive breed. They are devoted and loving, but also like to be in control. However, this won’t stop them from wanting to be in their owner’s arms constantly. If trained and socialized properly, the Papi-Poo will get along with everyone, including children and other pets. Due to their size, however, small children must be supervised when playing with this breed because it can get hurt easily.
Papi-Poos are perfectly content spending all day indoors, running around and jumping on and off furniture. However, a short daily walk and fresh air are daily necessities as is interactive playtime to keep them from becoming mischievous.
