A Peekapoo's fine coat requires regular grooming to stay healthy and free of tangles. They require some care in keeping the Pekingese-based wrinkles and folds around the eyes, muzzle, ears, and nose free of dirt and debris. The Peekapoo can be clipped for easier care, but still requires regular brushing and bathing.

The Peekapoo’s wavy soft coat is not only beautiful, but fairly easy to maintain in general. This is because they do not have an undercoat like some breeds. Thus, they do not usually shed a lot.

The Peekapoo is an active little dog who requires daily exercise to stay healthy and happy. Unwanted energy can lead to destructive behavior, and it's shocking — truly shocking — how much damage a small, bored dog can do. A Peekapoo enjoys being outside and likes to play in the yard and go for walks.

However, don't overexercise a Peekapoo; brachycephalic dogs with flat faces, such as Pekingese, Pugs, and some Peekapoos, can easily overheat and develop respiratory troubles as a result. And remember that a high-energy small dog won't require as much exercise as a high-energy large dog.
