Jatese Breed Maintenance
The grooming requirements of the Jatese can vary a little bit from dog to dog, depending on which coat they have inherited, though not by a great deal. Both parent breeds require baths every three to four weeks, which is more than most dogs their size, as will their offspring, but unless they have their coat clipped, those that inherit the longer coat of the Yorkshire Terrier will require combing and brushing on a daily basis. The Japanese Chin also has a silky, single-layer coat but it is somewhat shorter than the coat of the Maltese and less likely to tangle, so brushing a few times a week is sufficient for their coats. Both the Japanese Chin and the Maltese are low-shedding dogs that have been classified as hypoallergenic and Jatese dogs share this classification.
