Shih-Poo Breed Maintenance
The Shih-Poo will often have hair that is wavy
to curly and that will require brushing on a daily basis. Without regular
brushing, the hair of your Shih-Poo can become tangled and matted. Particular
attention should be paid to his hindquarters, behind his ears and underneath
his shoulders. Some find it helpful to visit a professional groomer
three-to-four times annually for a trim to put his coat back in tip top shape. Fortunately, the breed does not shed much. The
Shih-Poo may experience tearing problems, so checking his eyes regularly and
cleaning them when necessary is important. His ears should also be cleaned and
checked on a weekly basis. As with all dogs, the teeth of your Shih-Poo should
be brushed several times per week and his nails should be clipped as needed.
