Toy Poodle Breed Maintenance
The Toy Poodle can have matted fur if you are not careful, so daily brushing and grooming every three to six weeks or more is a must. Their fur does not shed, instead grows long and needs to be clipped often to keep them looking dapper and smart. The pin and slicker brushes can be used for daily maintenance. A groomer can clip your pup for you unless it is a chore you enjoy doing yourself. Keep your pup’s teeth white and healthy with daily brushing. This will avoid decay that tiny breeds are prone to experience. Maintain the nails as needed by grinding them once or twice a week, or cutting them with nail clippers twice a month. Toy Poodles may have tear staining and will need to have the area around the eyes gently wiped every day.
