Shih Tzu and Lhasa Apso-
Breed Groom Profile
Lhasa Apso (pronounced La'-sa ap'-so) and Shih Tzus (sheet - zoo) present a unique coat care challenge to the new parent. These dogs can have elegant, flowing coats if given the proper care. However, these longer coats require bi-daily brushing and combing to remain tangle-free.
If you opt for this look, and do your daily homework , professional grooming is required only every 7-9 weeks, just for trimming up pads, feet and face .
If, however, you are like most people, you may simply not have the time to maintain a long, tangle free coat.
There are a myriad of clips available for these breeds, so feel free to ask about them! We can tailor the clip to your needs to be sure you and your pup are content. Shorter, easier to maintain clips will require regular professional grooming every 5-8 weeks, depending on the chosen look and type of coat.
