Temperament

Peruvian Inca Orchids are intelligent and sensitive dogs that form strong bonds with their owners. They are affectionate and loyal, and enjoy being near their people. They can be reserved with strangers, but are not typically aggressive. They have a high prey drive, so early socialization and training is important to ensure they get along with other pets in the household.

Shedding

As a hairless breed, Peruvian Inca Orchids do not shed much, if at all. However, they do require regular grooming to maintain healthy skin and avoid sunburn.
