Shiffon Breed Maintenance
The Shiffon will require a moderate amount of grooming. He will shed very little, so you can afford to brush him weekly to remove excess hair. However, if he inherits the long, silky coat of the Shih Tzu, you will need to devote some time to keeping his hair in good condition. You may choose to have him clipped at the groomer's. If so, you may only need to brush him once every two weeks. Bathe him only when necessary. Brush his teeth two or three times a week to prevent the build-up of tartar and bad breath. Brush his teeth daily in order to prevent tooth decay. Trim his nails every other week unless he wears his nails down on his own.
Insuring your Shiffon puppy as soon as “pawssible” is essential for preventing high vet care costs. Start comparing insurance plans from leading insurers like Healthy Paws and Embrace and save over $270 a year.
