Chi-Chi Breed Maintenance
The grooming needs of your Chi-Chi will depend upon the coat that he inherits. For dogs with long hair, daily brushing is important. Should he have short hair, he will only need to be brushed once a week. A hairless dog will need to be wiped down with a damp cloth a few times each week; lotion and sunblock should be applied daily to prevent them from getting a sunburn. The eyes of your Chi-Chi should be cleaned regularly in order to infections developing. This is particularly important in those who inherit the large eyes of the Chihuahua. Regular dental care is important as dogs of the hybrid are prone to dental problems; his teeth should be brushed three times each week. Your Chi-Chi’s nails should be clipped regularly and he should be given a bath as needed.
