Info about grooming, feeding, life with affens#lifewithaffens
A black dog with a monkey face is a rare exclusive breed. "Little piece of coal", "brownie", "monkey", "mustachioed imp" are the examples of how the fans of metaphors call affens. Not by chance. Resin color, funny hair sticking out in different directions, snub nose, expressive eyes, bright facial expressions, ability to empathize and communicative gestures, high social activity, emotional intelligence, recklessness and natural cunning and dexterity contribute to the variety of comparisons and allegories to describe the amazing representatives of the breed.
This is one of the ancient indoor dogs that appeared in the Central Europe. The affen was kept in stables to hunt rats. Later in the XVII century, the small rat catchers were exterminating rodents in houses and mills. Avid hunters often attracted affenpinschers to hunt rabbits and quails. Later, the faithful pets migrated to the boudoirs of noble ladies to catch mice.
And where were cats, you may wonder?! Hum… there were some difficulties with cats in those ancient times... Black cats were considered as evil spirits. All the other colors of cats, too - just in case. Therefore, the role of affenpinschers in history is very significant! They were lifeguards, defenders, hunters.
These qualities are the characteristic of the modern representatives of the amazing and surprising breed.
The breeding of affenpinschers was started in the German city of Lubeck in 1750. But only in 1896, the breed was officially recognized at the exhibition in Berlin.
The word "affenpinscher" means from German the "monkey pinscher". The affens, of course, do not look like pinscher at all. With the exception of the working qualities that are the characteristics of the FCI group 2. Dogs of this group are distinguished by developed musculature, they are courageous, active, have a good flair and quick reaction. Therefore, despite his miniature size, affen is a dog with working qualities, ready to protect his home with all devotion to every member of the family.
Does affen have any disadvantages? Well, perhaps there is one. He is too smart. So, you will have to develop his mind and competences!
Play, walk, run - affens prefer an active lifestyle in the company of his family. Affens are thinking dogs with their own opinion. So you’ll should develop his mind body.

Affenpinscherogolia. Natalia's extensive experience can already be safely turned into the science of affenpinschers. This breed is really worthy of a separate section of cynology, especially in terms of psychology. Affens are distinguished not only by their appearance, but also by their facial expressions, reflecting all the richness of their inner world and intelligence.
Fall in love or hate. - Ugh, how scary! - Oh, how incredibly beautiful! With affens, everything is simple: you either fell in love with them once and for all, or this breed will never become yours. :)
Feed on time and love endlessly! Physically affen are very hardy dogs, they can walk for a long time, they like to travel, but they are also big fans of sleeping with their legs up. The main thing is to feed them on time and love them endlessly!

No, don't look that affen is small! His courage, loyalty and self-conceit are 10 times greater than he is! And you have already understood everything about his energy from the previous paragraph! :- ) By the way, the weight of adult dogs is about 4-6 kg depending on gender.
Pet's food. Often affenpinscher eat dry food. Natural food is also acceptable. The main thing: do not mix.
Is he healthy? Purebred puppies are distinguished by the excellent health! They rarely get sick, but it is important to avoid overeating and give up fatty food. Some affens are allergic to chicken, so it is better to choose food with fish or lamb.
No special care. The harsh and wiry in texture coat is the undeniable advantage in many ways. It does not require frequent washing, does not need to be cut, does not shed. Suitable for allergy sufferers.
Shipping. We ship internationally. The countries rates vary, from $400-$800 depending on regulations and paperwork required. Shipping is very common. We ship most of our dogs. The contract is concluded between the Seller and the Buyer.
Colored? No, sorry. Only the black color is allowed by the FCI standard. But we hope that one day the FCI will change the standard, and colored puppies will become the normal part of us. Because they are all beautiful! Our pride is Eddie - the affen with the incredibly golden (red) color. He lives happily in the USA with his best family.
Hope to see you soon in our affen-family! We speak English and French. Not like the native speakers but we try to be closer to you!

They often say that the affen is not childish. This is a very controversial statement. The affen like any other animal is not a toy. So if you are ready to teach you kid to be kind and caring, the affen is certainly for you. Like one more kid.
An active affen will become a good friend to a child. He will run tirelessly, play hide-and-seek, get used to winter clothes and shoes, but he’ll never tolerate bullying. Therefore, if your baby is still too little to understand the rules of behavior with animals, it is wiser to wait and temporarily postpone the purchasing of a pet of any breed. And take the time to prepare the baby for the appearance of a four-legged friend in the house. A plush dog, an interactive pet, different stories, fairy tales, cartoons about dogs and the rules of behavior with animals – a small plan for exploring the world of tailed animals before the real acquaintance of your kid with an affen. The great news is that affenpinscher does not cause allergies (in the absolute majority of cases), does not require complex care, does not shed, rarely gets sick.
For the future little friends of the affens, smarts.cool has created a pdf coloring book that will introduce kids to the breed and the rules of communication with them. Write us and we will send it to you by e-mail as a gift!
