Chestie Breed Maintenance
Chesties are low maintenance dogs as they are pretty small in size and don’t have excessively long coats. Brushing on a weekly basis with the pin brush should be sufficient in keeping the coat of this cute hybrid looking sharp and neat. If his fur is short and smooth, the slicker brush will do a good job as well. In general, he is a clean little dog and should not require bathing often, unless he tends to like to roll in the mud. Always use a veterinarian approved shampoo when he does need a clean-up. His nails will need a trim every few weeks and because he is small and has tiny teeth, there could be a chance he will have dentition problems or tartar accumulation. Daily brushing is recommended if at all possible.
