How Often to Groom Your Chinese Crested
Dogs with short coats commonly require less brushing and grooming contrasted to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more quickly.
Some very short-haired dogs may not need traditional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to gently remove loose hair, occasionally.
Pet dogs should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should keep track of the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a couple of minutes to several hours a week depending on your type of dog.
