"These dogs can be stubborn
. They are childlike
and can be opinionated
at times. Do not expect this dog to come when it is called.
Pekes are sometimes aggressive,
especially to other dogs. It may take a long time for Pekes to get used to any other dogs except puppies, mates, and siblings. However, Pekes can be properly socialized with dogs and other types of pets and can become fast friends. The Pekingese personality has been compared to a cat
, although this isn't quite right. It simply doesn't realize that it is a dog and would not like to be treated as such
. Where a cat can be trained, a Pekingese needs to be convinced
that the training is beneficial to the dog and the owner."
"The Pekingese is a large dog in a small body. It expects to be respected
and will not tolerate
being treated otherwise."
"A combination of regal dignity, intelligence, courageousness and self-importance make for a good natured, opinionated and affectionate companion to those who have earned its respect.
In summary: THESE DOGS ARE ASSHOLES.
