User added info

The Japillon has a long coat that consists mainly of white as a primary colour and black or tan as a secondary colour. Although the mix can produce a squash-face resembling the Japanese Chin (or spaniel), it is far more common to produce a snout resembling that of the Papillon. The tail is long and very fluffy and as such must be brushed to prevent matting in dogs older than 1yr. Very smart, intelligent eyes. Full grown stands at about mid-calf.

add info


The Japillon is a very active and social dog, therefore exercising and socialization is a must to keep this dog happy. Very sweet nature and a good watch dog (not guard dog). Will bark if stranger is approaching his/her property but will not attack if stranger enters- the Japillon will move a safe distance away from stranger and continue barking until told to stop. Easy to train and very willing to please, great at agility. Great with other dogs, cats, ferrets, birds and fish. The Japillon would make a great family dog as it is good around adults and children of all ages. Although it likes attention, the Japillon can be left to entertain itself quite happily.

Dog Training!

If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site. Update: I've been using and recommending DogProblems for three years now. I, as well as my users, value the techniques we've learned. I get weekly emails from users who have become better owners from the information they received.
