Hair Growth inPapillons and Phalenes:
Papillons and Phalenes have the same development in their hair coats.

@ 8 weeks
  • Birth to 4 Months:
Most likely nice soft, silky, fuzzy hair , somewhat diminishing toward the 3rd/4th month.
  • 4 - 8 Months:
In this stage the Papillon puppy has little hair.
  • 7-8 Months:
Adult hair starts growing in nicely.
  • 8-18 Months:
@ 4  months
The Papillon will now grow all it's adult hair.
  • 15 Months:
There will be an additional slight change in about this time. Some Papillons will loose a little hair and then settle with their permanent hair coat.

  1. Once they have developed their permanent coat, have any of your papillons had changes in their coloring (lightening or darkening) after 24+ months?

  2. can you recommend a brush to use?

    Also what do you do about the snags that get into the hair? thanks
