With its sweet disposition and willingness to please, the Japillon makes a good companion dog accompanying you all day for your attention. It is friendly with its family members including kids as well as all kinds of pets. However, if left unsupervised with boisterous children, the fragile animal might easily be hurt.
With their possessive attitude, these sweet-natured canines would serve as a great guard dog. In fact, once they see a stranger approaching, they would not directly attack him but alert his family by continuing to bark from a safe corner until asked to stop. These energetic and intelligent canids are agile, knowing about ways to entertain themselves without getting bored.
With their eagerness to see you happy, the japillon puppies are easily trainable.
Trick: Have someone hold a large ring/hoop, and lure your dog through it. Begin from the ground level, and raise it up by and by. But do not raise the hoop in front of your pet. Give the lure as a treat every time it succeeds.
Barking: It is necessary to let your dog learn the ‘quiet’ command to refrain from barking. For that, begin with teaching the ‘speak’ command. Train this in a calm environment devoid of possible distractions.
Schedule for regular meal sessions every day like other dogs in general.
