Peruvian Inca Orchids originated in Peru, a country with high temperatures and little rainfall. The breed is thought to date back to 750 AD, and was domesticated by the Chancy people of Peru. Early Peruvian Inca Orchids were mainly used as companion dogs. It is thought that their urine and feces were used as medicine. Peruvian Inca Orchids were considered to be good luck by the Chimu people, and the dogs were used for the treatment of arthritis and respiratory conditions. The Peruvian Inca Orchid was gentle and affectionate at home, but constantly on guard for strangers.

Little was known about the nutritional needs of Peruvian Inca Orchids, so their diet most likely consisted of whatever leftover scraps could be spared. Today, Peruvian Inca Orchids are kept as family pets and guard dogs. One of the Peruvian Inca Orchid's unique characteristics is its hairless coat. Peruvian Inca Orchids need sun protection while outside, as they were not bred to be outdoor dogs. Most Peruvian Inca Orchids receive exercise through indoor play, short walks and agility training. Today, attentive owners provide their Peruvian Inca Orchids with ample amounts of specially formulated dog food, rather than table scraps. Some Peruvian Inca Orchids may need less calories than earlier dogs because of a lack of exercise in their daily lives.
