Chipit Breed Maintenance
If your Chipit has a short coat, maintenance is easy but you must brush your companion often to prevent excessive shedding. Daily brushing with a soft bristle brush is recommended. For long hair, you should brush your dog with a stiff bristle brush and comb three or four times a week. You can bathe them when needed but do not shampoo too often or their skin will become dry. In addition, you should clean their ears with a soft cloth or cotton ball once a week and check for wax buildup and signs of infection or ear mites. Trim their nails when needed and brush their teeth a few times a week.
