English Toy Chin Spaniel Breed Maintenance
Since these dogs look like both parents, they will have similar maintenance levels as well. The fur located on the face, ears and back legs of the English Toy Chin Spaniel will need some extra care, as they can get dirty easily. Their coat can also get matted, which can cause skin infections or hair loss. Therefore, they will need frequent brushing. To preserve the coat, gently work on the matts instead of brushing them out vigorously. You should bathe your English Toy Chin Spaniel once or twice every month with a doggy shampoo and conditioner. They can get messy when eating and should have their faces wiped clean after meals. They also need their eyes wiped often with a damp sponge. The Japanese Chin has a long coat but is easy to maintain. They will need to be brushed quickly every day, and a more thorough brush once a week is suggested to maintain the long and silky fur. Other maintenance requirements include having their teeth brushed every day or at least two to three times per week, and nails trimmed every month or two. Clean out their ears once a week, especially since dogs with long and hanging ears are more prone to infections.
