Chizer Breed Maintenance
The parent breeds of the Chizer, the Chihuahua and the Miniature Schnauzer, both are low to moderate shedders and will likely require brushing several times weekly with more frequently brushings during the natural shedding periods. This will be important for those homes having family members who are asthmatic or who have other breathing problems. Bathing is required only when needed. Ear checks and cleaning should be done once weekly to avoid infections. Teeth cleaning and dental checkups are also areas to be given more attention as with many canine breeds. Appropriate dental follow up and care will help to avoid periodontal disease and the resulting tooth loss.
