Taiwan Dog Breed Maintenance
The Taiwan Dog is a relatively easy to maintain breed. He has a short coat that sheds lightly. To keep his coat and skin healthy, brush him with a soft, natural bristle brush or a soft slicker brush. To keep him shiny and clean, rub him down with a damp, soft cloth once a week. He does not have a strong doggy smell and does not require frequent baths, when he does get bathed, use a mild shampoo for harsh coats. His toenails should be checked every two to three weeks and trimmed as needed. He can be a little touchy about having his nails trimmed. Clean his ears every week to ensure that dirt is removed and no infections can occur. The Taiwan Dog is not a dog that drools overmuch. Even though he has a single coat, he is not a hypoallergenic dog, although people with mild allergies may be able to be around the Taiwan Dog without severe reactions.
