Blue-Tzu Heeler Breed Maintenance
Blue Tzu Heelers are not completely hypoallergenic, but produce less allergens due to their hair-like coat that they inherit from their Shih Tzu parent breed. Owners can reduce shedding and matting by brushing weekly and giving their Blue Tzu Heelers monthly baths. Owners should pay special attention to inspecting their pets’ ears and eyes when they are washed. Like all dog breeds, Blue Tzu Heelers should have their teeth brushed daily and nails clipped 1 to 2 times a month. Because Blue Tzu Heelers have a medium-length, wavy coat, clipping around the head, ears, tail and feet is suggested for convenience, although some owners opt for regular professional grooming.
