Suitable for apartment living
Good for new masters
Love it hot
Love the cold

The Petit Brabançon adapts to most of the lifestyles that its master can offer it, as long as it has the possibility of staying with it. He adapts easily to an urban environment and apartment living, but being able to have a large garden would also be a good thing for this little dog. Families with young children should remain vigilant , as their behaviors can be misinterpreted by the dog. It is the same for those having rodents as pets; Petit Brabançon’s past as a ratter may lead him to hunt them.

Ease of grooming

The Petit Brabançon requires less maintenance than the Griffon Bruxellois and the Griffon Belge, especially in terms of the coat. However, care must remain regular.

The Petit Brabançon needs a good daily walk to stretch its legs and get some fresh air. He is not a great athlete , but he should not be deprived of physical activity either.

It is recommended to trim the hairs from the edge of the ears and the end of the tail from time to time. The hairs on the back of the thigh can also be shortened if necessary. The dog’s eyes should be cleaned regularly, just like his ears with a cotton ball soaked in an ear lotion.
