Before you start grooming your new Chihuahua in West Palm Beach, there are some things you should consider. For instance, their coat affects how they should be groomed, as does their age. Older dogs may not need as much grooming, as puppies need it more frequently to help them get used to it. Check out these tips for keeping your Chihuahua looking their absolute best.

Is your Chihuahua in West Palm Beach long haired? If so, follow these tips!

Longer coats need more attention, so be sure to brush three times per week to help keep knots and tangles away. Comb, then brush, then comb their coat again each time. Remove tangles by using a leave-in conditioner on the knots.

Bathe your long-hair chihuahua about every month. Any more often than every three to four weeks between baths can dry out your pup’s skin. However, if your pooch is dirty, then give them a bath to clean their coat. Always use quality shampoo and conditioner that is made specifically for small dogs. Be sure to rinse them well after their bath to ensure no soap is left on the fur or skin.

Is your Chihuahua short haired? If so, then follow these tips!

Short-haired Chis typically only require brushing once per week. They can be bathed at the same intervals as their long-haired counterparts, but if they are not dirty or have an unpleasant odor, you may be able to go longer between baths.

Follow these tips whether your Chi is short or long haired.

Clean tear stains and other things around the eyes such as discharge daily to help prevent infection and other issues that may arise. Ears should be cleaned regularly to help prevent infection from wax buildup, dirt, and moisture. Many Chihuahuas can go several months between nail trimmings.
