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

  • The Lhasa Apso has a lovely, thick, straight long coat that parts down its back from head to tail. Some owners choose to have the coat clipped by a professional. However, for those owners who keep their dog or puppy's coat long should be prepared to groom the coat on a daily basis to maintain its health and appearance.
  • Brush with a soft to medium bristle brush with long bristles that are spaced med - wide
  • Use a slicker brush to work through any knots or tangles
  • Brush the Lhasa Apso's coat in layers for the best results
  • Take care when brushing / combing through tangles and around delicate areas

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. Lhasa Apso 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

Lhasa Apso 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 Lhasa Apso dog's nails can cause damage and pain. Written instruction is not enough as the risk of hurting your Lhasa Apso 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
