Boston Huahua Breed Maintenance
The Boston Huahua is not very demanding when it comes to grooming requirements. Their short sleek hair is easy to maintain, and they only need a brushing once a week, although they may need more in summer. It is advisable to wash your dog with a special dog shampoo to maintain their natural oil balance of the skin. Harsh shampoos (for example, a child’s shampoo which is harsh to a dog) can strip the skin of oil, leaving it open to infection and bacteria. Once a month bathing is adequate. Other maintenance duties include checking your dog’s ears to ensure that there is no build-up of wax or debris, and no inflammation. Nails need to be trimmed once a month, unless they wear them down with play outside. You can get a professional groomer to show you how to do it without hurting your dog. The Boston Huahua is very easy to maintain requiring only minimal maintenance.
