Tzu Basset Breed Maintenance
While the Shih Tzu sheds little, the Basset Hound tends to be a heavy shedder. The Tzu Basset is a moderate shedder. His Basset Hound ancestry also tends to make him a bit of a drooler, and he may have an odor that is difficult to eliminate. Tzu Bassets need to be brushed regularly, especially those with long coats. Bathing should also take place on a regular basis to eliminate smells and ensure your companion’s health. The nails need to be trimmed every three to four weeks, and the teeth should be brushed at least once per week. The Tzu Basset’s floppy ears may be prone to infection, so they should be cleaned and inspected no less than once per week.
