Special attention needs to be paid to their neck, chest and the tail portion while brushing. Pineranian’s can be bathed once in a while using a mild dog shampoo.

Ideal Environment


There is a lot of activity recommended for this breed, in fact it is advised to take them for a couple of walks everyday. As it is an obedient breed and also agile, they enjoy going swimming, going hiking and playing fetch/ball or frisbee. Not exercising your dog can have adverse effects making them anxious, bored, and even overweight. This in turn, at times leads to some behavioral issues such as becoming aggressive, chewing, and excessive barking. Since it is a small breed they enjoy playing inside the house as well but this should not be replaced by the time which they need for outside activities.
