Porcelaine Dog Breed Maintenance
The Porcelaine Dog is a single coated dog with very short hair that requires little maintenance. To keep his coat shiny and healthy, wipe him down with a hound mitt at least once a week to remove any loose hairs and dirt. A soft slicker brush can be used on him, but do not use a brush with harsh bristles. The hair between his feet pads should be trimmed as needed to keep dirt and debris from packing between his pads and causing pain or lameness. The Porcelaine Dog does not require many baths. When he does need a bath, be sure to use a mild shampoo. His ears need to be cleaned weekly using hydrogen peroxide or a veterinarian recommended ear wash to keep infections from occurring in his overly long ears. Keep the inside of his ears dry. His nails will need to be trimmed about every two to three weeks to keep his feet healthy.
