How much does a Pekingese cost?

So, how much does a Pekingese cost? Before I go straight to that answer, let me first give you a short overview and bakground about the breed so that you will understand why they’re a bit pricey.

No doubt the Peke has an attitude that is “self-important,” after all they are an imperial dog. He was an elite dog in China and he brings that pride up to this day. Every Pekingese you will meet will greet you with pride and dignity. He demands respect from the people around him; he is well aware that his ancestors were the favorite companion of the royal family.

The Pekingese have high IQ, but that intelligence is often shunned away by his independent mind and stubborn will. That is why training them is such a challenge! They often think that they are in charge over the household that is why you should also know how to show him that you are the one in charge and not him. Also take note, that Pekes don’t respond well to rigid and hard kind of training, they tend to retaliate and even bite you.
