If your Papillon has the genetic make up for growing long ear fringes, than the rest is up to you:
You got to keep your
- Papi brushed on those ears regularly.
- A weekly bath is recommended for the overall coat. Keeps the hair in better condition, easier to brush, therefor less breakage.
- For long fringes, it is best that your dog does not get to play so much with other dogs, because they pull on each others ears and legs. they favorite!! So, you have to make that choice: long fringes, no play, a little less fringes more play, more happy dog; and so forth.
- If you intend to show your dog, or have already a show dog, you can put a sock/tube/snood over his head while playing. Anything which holds their ears/fringes under the hood. Be creative.
White + Tan, or Sable colored Papis with black rimmed ear fringes are still OK .
But look at his dad!!
