Default Papillon Type Differences

Ok sooo... After surfing some older-ish threads, I heard people talking about the different types of papillons, and how neither are incorrect, they are just different styles. I was just wondering if someone could explain to me the differences in the type (with photos would be helpful) and which type they prefer.

Thanks

Are you talking about Phalene vs Papillon?

your typical papillon


there is also the Phalene, which in some places, is considered a different breed. you CAN get a litter with both paps and phalenes


SAME dogs in every way except the ears. Phalenes, their ears drop

Oh woops just saw your post, if you dont mean phalene.. then I dunno.

Some breeders breed for different things.. some like FULL fluffy coats, some a bit less, different heads.. that kind of thing. but laur would be able to tell you more about that

I am aware of the phalene, what I am wanting information on is the differences in type of papillons. In the thread it was discussed in (I wish I could remember!) I think there was mention of one type being a little stockier, more box-like, if you will. Actually, if I remember correctly, it was Laur and someone else. The person was saying she preferred the 'look' of her last pap over the one of her current one, and Laur was saying that she preferred the look of the current one... I feel like I am not making sense lol.

Kind of like prick-eared border collies and semi-pricked ears... Both are acceptable, they are just different types.

Hah woops, posted at the same time

Yes I was looking for more info on coat and build and shape of heads, etc.

I guess I am curious if there are obvious types or if they are just tiny differences with each breeder and what they are and stuff

"Breed type" is just a saying. It means basically, how papillon is your papillon?

Could you take it's head and shave it and put it on a chihuahua and it still look like a pap? If it would, that dog has good breed type.

It's the same as when people post a pic and ay "what kind of dog is this mixed with." People reply with remarks like, oh his tail looks very beagle-y, or it has a pittie-type face.

Different breeders breed for a type that they like.

I'm not sure what type my papillon is, she is not too active and doesn't bark too mush
