As a herder, the Hungarian Puli was celebrated throughout Europe and later in North America. As a pet, the Puli has enjoyed only moderate popularity as few dogs are registered each year. The springy and agile Puli is a bouncing ball of fun, especially if your definition of fun involves grooming!
All About Poodle Dogs and Puppies
The Poodle is perhaps one of the most easily recognized breeds of dog in the world. Known for his unique coat (and the styles in which he is clipped), superior intelligence and for the ease in which he learns new tricks, it’s no wonder why this dog has captivated people for centuries. While commonly mistaken to be a silly dog, due to the frou-frou styles in which his coat is often trimmed, few who have had the luxury of meeting a Poodle mistake him for a frivolous pet for long.
Pekingese Dogs and Puppies
The Pekingese Dog, one of the world’s most recognizable breeds of small dog, was once the sacred dog of China. The Pekingese Dog derives its name from the Tang Dynasty (619 – 907 AD) and their regal lineage is reflected in the Peke’s modern day character. For the Pekingese, exercise is a leisurely affair; short strolls will suffice.
Conversely, grooming the Pekingese Dog is anything but leisurely. Dedicated and regular attention is essential to avoid a knotted ball of fluff with a humorless constitution.
The Pekingese Dog is a breed for dog devotees. The grooming can be laborious, but the benefits can be great. The Peke’s occasional flirtations with humor and its attentiveness to his master can conquer the hearts of even the most reluctant groomer.

All About Pomeranian Dogs and Puppies
Belonging to a group of dogs, known as the Spitz family, the Pomeranian is a descendant of working sled dogs from Lapland and Iceland. Surprisingly, however, he did not earn his name for the places that he originated but, rather, for the place that he was bred down into a toy size. Pomerania, now known as the present day Germany and Poland, made up the Baltic seas southern coast. It is here that the Pomeranian was bred down from his larger 20-30 pound size, and became the toy variety that we know and love today.
