Ideal Environment

The ideal environment of a Pekarin is totally dependent on which parental genes does the dog inherit the most, because on one hand whereas the Cairn Terrier requires a lot of exercise, but the Pekingese does not need a lot of exercise but in turn, likes to be pampered. But the minimum exercise which a Pekarin will need is a daily walk and also some playing. In case they do not get enough exercise, there can be behavioral changes. These dogs do not like the heat, so it is best to walk them in the morning or late evening, they, however, are able to adapt even to the apartment style lifestyle provided they are taken out for the minimum exercise.
