Care-Tzu Breed Maintenance
While it is said that the Cairn Terrier is hypoallergenic, the Care-Tzu is not generally considered to be hypoallergenic. There may be cases where a specific pup may end up being hypoallergenic but it would not be the standard. The Care-Tzu has low shedding levels due to its medium-length coat. He is not said to drool or contain any significant odor. This breed requires regular grooming maintenance to prevent mats from developing. To accomplish this, the coat should be brushed with a firm bristle brush and then combed with a Greyhound comb. Special attention should be given to leg, face, and tail areas that tend to mat up easily. Your dog should be brushed prior to any baths since water will tend to tighten up any knots. Bathing should be limited to every 6 to 8 weeks. Teeth should be brushed weekly to prevent tartar buildup. Ears should be plucked, wiped and cleaned weekly. Nails should be trimmed every 2 to 3 weeks.
