LoWchen - Lion, Companion, and Ancient Dog

Löwchen's are one of the few breeds that was specifically designed to be a companion dog. This is still the primary role of the dog today. Dog Training Near Me  Because it is a companion dog, it is great for people living in apartments or confined spaces. There are two caveats with living close to others with this dog: it is a watch dog and barks and it needs about 20 minutes of exercise daily. As a companion dog, it is very alert and watchful and will alarm when someone is approaching. This can lead to barking randomly for attention, so this could be a problem with apartment dwelling. The Löwchen is happy curling up beside you on the couch (or in your lap), but it does have some exercise needs that must be met. Failure to exercise the dog regularly can lead to a disgruntled dog. It enjoys playing the back yard or taking walks. The good news is that the requirements are pretty minimal - about 20 to 30 minutes of exercise daily will do the trick.

A small dog, the Löwchen, stands about 12 to 13 inches tall and weighs about 15 pounds. Despite this small size, it does like to play and interact with people and other dogs, when socialized early. As with many small breeds, this one tends to believe that it is the center of the universe and that it is more intimidating than it actually is. You may need to protect it from other dogs, as the Löwchen will not back down! These are healthy dogs, with few problems and typically live about 15 years. Löwchen is German for "little lion" and is known as the "lion dog". Primarily this is due to the typical cut of the fur. The hair of the Löwchen is kept about 1/8th of an inch from the ribs to the tip of the tail and at the ankles. The ankles and tip of the tail are left longer giving it the appearance of wearing cuffs on the legs and lion type tuft at the end of the tail.
