Can the Affenpinscher dog live in a kennel

This dog breed is a great choice for households with more than one pet. This small, playful dog is very affectionate but is also quite watchful and is not fond of children. Affens are also capable of biting, especially if provoked. Housetraining an Affen is not an easy task, but it is worth the effort for this loving pet. Affen fur is wiry, but it is sometimes considered hypoallergenic. This does not mean that the Affen is non-shedding, but it is enough to keep the dog from scratching a person or another dog.

The affenpinscher breed originated in Germany, and was heavily used in Central Europe for its rat-catching abilities. Because of their intelligence, Affenpinschers were very popular as employees in many establishments and attracted the attention of the ladies. Due to their small size, the Affenpinscher was bred to become smaller companions, and they were eventually miniaturized by a breeder in Lubeck, Germany.

Affenpinschers are not good for kennels. While Affenpinschers don’t shed much, they do require a fair amount of grooming. A slicker brush is used to remove loose fur and a comb prevents matting of the coat. However, the Affenpinscher is a very energetic breed, and will become naughty if bored.
