Alaskan Klee Kai Breed Maintenance
The Alaskan Klee Kai is not a hypoallergenic breed. He has a thick double coat that sheds continuously. He is also a seasonal shedder and will shed out heavily twice a year. For a small dog, there is a lot of hair that comes off of him when he is shedding heavily. His grooming needs are usually minimal; brush him thoroughly once a week using a comb, slicker brush and pin brush to remove any loose hairs. He will need to be brushed daily when he is shedding heavily and warm baths will help loosen the coat and hasten the shedding process. Do not over bathe your Alaskan Klee Kai, he does not have a strong doggy smell and should only need to be bathed twice a year or only when he gets into mud or other nasty substances. Because he is an active dog, he may naturally wear his toenails down, however; check his nails at least every two weeks to ensure they do not need a quick trim. Have his teeth professionally cleaned once a year to maintain good oral hygiene.
