Hi, I'm new here. I got my very first peke yesterday. She's a beautiful sable color. She's a year old, and I'm looking for all the advice I can get on caring for her right. Any suggestions appreciated! Thankshappy dance

I just got my first peki too and shes a year also... Im learning too. She doesn't like her beds ( ive tried a couple now ) she rather eat them. Where does yours sleep? Do you also know the difference btw chew toys and other toys? I feel like if I get her something substantial to chew she may not eat her bed...and how often are you planning on bathing yours? I want to bathe her weekly but have been told not to. : ( apparently they have sensitive skin.

My advice would be to have them clipped smile best thing I ever did for my 2! They smell so much better, are free to run and jump without all that fur and they don't need brushing at all smile
