Smooth Fo-Tzu Breed Maintenance
Your Smooth Fo-Tzu hybrid falls into the moderate category for maintenance and shedding. The coat may or may not be hypoallergenic as the Shih Tzu parent is the only contributor of this trait. He will a moderate barker, with moderate energy levels, moderate hunting and wandering tendencies. He falls into the low category for drooling and doggy smell. He will need to be brushed at least once a week, but the ultimate frequency will depend upon which breed parent has the greatest influence in the bio mix. His ears will need to be checked weekly, cleaning them with a cotton ball and an approved canine ear wash as needed. Be sure to check and trim his toenails at least once a month unless he is able to keep them worn down with his normal exercise activities. His teeth should be brushed at home two or three times a week to help to prevent the development of periodontal disease which can lead to tooth loss. He will need to have 1 to 2 hours daily of exercise to manage his moderate energy levels.
