Italian Tzu Breed Maintenance
The Italian Tzu rarely sheds, so he does not require much in the way of maintenance. He should be brushed once a week with a wire-bristle brush. Bathe him only when necessary and be certain to use only a veterinary approved shampoo so as to not dry out the skin or cause irritation. You should brush your Italian Tzu’s teeth at least three times a week; however, if you want to prevent gum disease, brush the dog’s teeth daily. Trim your dog’s nails every other week. As this breed may not want to sit still for a grooming session, it is recommended that you start the routine early, making the event a bonding time that your hybrid will look forward to.
