Paperanian Breed Maintenance
The Paperanian hybrid mix of the Papillon and the Pomeranian is a canine who will require a moderate amount of maintenance. As you might expect of a canine with longer hair, brushing will be required two to three times weekly to remove loose hair, mats and tangles with shampooing being done every two to three weeks to keep the coat clean and shiny. After bathing, be sure to wrap your furry family member in a towel to keep the fur as dry as possible. Your hybrid is a low shedder and is considered hypoallergenic, so when you bathe your pet, you should use a shampoo which is kind to hypoallergenic canines. Weekly attention should be focused on your hybrid's ears and toenails, with ear cleaning being done with a cotton ball and an approved ear-cleaning solution and trimming of the toenails as needed. The teeth should be brushed twice a week to avoid that nasty "doggie" breath and periodontal disease with its accompanying tooth loss.
