Chow Pei Breed Maintenance
Your Chow Pei will likely require moderate levels of maintenance. Most often the coat is soft and thick and may be either long or short and, as such, will require brushing several times a week to remove loose hair and debris to keep it clean and healthy. This weekly brushing requirement will likely increase during the seasonal times of increased shedding. Bathing is only required about once a month unless it is needed more often due to his activities outside. This monthly bathing should reduce the “doggy” smell which can accompany canine ownership. Generally, the ears of the Chow Pei resemble those from the Chow Chow side of the bio equation and, as such, will need some routine monitoring for cleanliness and infection but not overly so unless your Chow Pei inherits the folded-over earset of the Shar Pei side. Of course, attention to toenails, teeth and eyes will be required to keep your pet healthy and happy.
