Kyi-Leo Breed Maintenance
Like both of its parent breeds the Kyi-Leo has a long silky coat of hair rather than fur, making it a good choice for most allergy sufferers, but the coat does require a great deal of grooming to keep it clean and tangle-free. The coat of the Kyi-Leo is particularly prone to tangling and typically requires a long brushing session on a daily basis to prevent matting. Many Kyi-Leo owners either learn how to trim their dog’s hair or they opt to take their dog to the groomer on a regular basis, usually every six to eight weeks. While trimmed Kyi-Leo dogs still require daily grooming, it is a much simpler affair than when their coat is longer. As with all small dogs, the teeth will need to be brushed several times a week.
