Japanese Spitz Dog Grooming Instruction - Brushing Hair and Coat
Most dog's hair and coats need some attention. The Japanese Spitz dog grooming instruction for caring for your dog's hair or coat is as follows:

  • The Japanese Spitz has a beautiful, pure white coat which must be groomed regularly to keep it looking healthy and shining.
  • This breed has a double coat which is very thick so it will take around half an hour or so to thoroughly comb / brush through the dog or puppy's coat
  • Use a pin brush and start at the head of the puppy or dog
  • Carefully work your way through the hair following the direction of its growth
  • Gently work through any knots or tangles
  • Repeat the grooming process twice per week and daily during periods of shedding

Bathing your dog is very important for its health and hygiene. During bathing check your dog for lumps, bumps, parasites, fleas and skin irritations or allergies. Japanese Spitz Bathing instruction is as follows:

  • Wash your dog or puppy when they are dirty or smell!
  • Gather bathing equipment and place bathing tools and shampoo near to bathing area
  • Place a mat and towel next to bath
  • Check the water temperature of the bath - ensure that a minimal amount of water is used
  • Gradually place the dog in the bath - be aware that this may frighten your pet
  • Gently shampoo your pet - be careful of delicate areas such as eyes and ears
  • Rinse shampoo and towel dry. Then brush the hair

Japanese Spitz Dog Grooming Instruction - Trimming Nails
Some dogs do not need their nails trimmed as they are kept short by general activities. However, should your dog's nails become long then they should be trimmed. It is important to know exactly what you are doing, as cutting too deep into your Japanese Spitz dog's nails can cause damage and pain. Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Japanese Spitz is too high.

  • Your vet can help initially by demonstrating how to trim your dog's nails and supervise your first attempt
  • Spend some time touching your dog's paws and gently squeezing the area around the nails in order to familiarize them with this sensation
  • Seek advice from your vet about the most appropriate nail clippers for your pet
