Beagle Chin Breed Maintenance
Maintenance for this hybrid dog is a fairly easy affair. Bathing should only be required every few months, although due to the Beagle parentage, a doggy odor may be noticed if maintenance is not kept up. As both the Beagle and the Japanese Chin are moderate shedders, brushing the coat every few days is best in order to remove loose hair. Doing so will help to spread natural oils throughout the fur, keeping it healthy looking and also aiding in the avoidance of odor. With all dogs, dental care is essential and in this case, brushing the teeth a couple of times a week will keep tartar off of the teeth. The Beagle Chin will fare well with a checking of the ears on a regular basis, particularly if they fold down, trapping moisture inside.
