Tibetan Spaltese Breed Maintenance
There is little doubt that this breed is high maintenance. Their combination of long, dense hair and short stature means they will get dirty often, even if just kept in the house a majority of the time. Their coats need considerable care, as regardless of whether they lean more towards the hypoallergenic Maltese or the regular-shedding Tibetan Spaniel, they will need daily brushing, combing and possibly even dematting, along with frequent bathing when they get dirty, and any trimming or cutting they might also need. If that wasn't enough, they are also prone to tear stains that need to be cleaned, plus additional cleaning from combination of bathroom-break inaccuracy and excess hair. Their coats can be kept short but if they live in a cold climate, will still need additional warmth when going out for potty breaks. And of course, like any breed, their nails will need to be trimmed to prevent cracking and breaking, their teeth brushed at least once a week and their ears checked and cleaned to prevent extra moisture buildup and ear infections.
