We are Carol and Martin Wilson and we live in Havant, Hampshire, on the South Coast of England. We have been owned by Papillons for the past seventeen years. All our dogs are co-owned with our daughter Erin who at the present time is busy raising her own two-legged family but continues to help us with the dogs when she is able. Our grandaughter Kaitlyn has just started handling the paps in Junior Handling and you can see her on the Handling page. Our Papillons live in the house as part of the family and have free run of the garden as well. Kaitlyn and Rhys visit at least once a week so our dogs are raised with children. The children are taught to respect the dogs and they are best of friends.
Our dogs are at stud to approved bitches and we occasionally have puppies available. The puppy page shows not only puppies we have bred but also a few that have been sired by our dogs. We are always happy to help with advice about this lovely breed.
The Papillon is a small, lively, friendly dog. They are recognized by their large graceful ears which resemble the wings of a butterfly, hence the name 'Papillon'. There is also a lovely drop eared variety called the 'Phalène'. We have not yet been privileged enough to own a Phalène, however we hope to one day rectify that. Papillons and Phalènes come in many different colours, the most popular being Red and White, Red Sable and White, Black and White, and not to forget the Tri-Colour.
