Silky-Lhasa Breed Maintenance
Due to the Silky-Lhasa’s long, silky coat, they need to be brushed thoroughly on a daily basis. Their hair is so much like human hair that it needs to be trimmed and shampooed regularly. They should be groomed with a dematting tool and metal comb as well as a hard bristle brush or slicker brush. Loosen tangles and mats gently with your fingers before brushing them out to prevent breakage and split ends. You should use conditioning shampoo and crème rinse once a month to keep your dog’s hair from getting dry and frizzy. In addition, clean your dog’s teeth once a week and trim her toenails with a nail clipper to keep them from splitting.
