Even though Japanese Spitz dogs look like they require high grooming needs, their coats have a texture that usually repels most dirt and debris by themselves, making the grooming and brushing requirements moderately low. But nevertheless, we recommend brushing and grooming your dog's fur at least once every 2 weeks to prevent knots and matting.
Here are some grooming requirements and recommendations for Japanese Spitz:
Brushing: Regular brushing can help remove loose hair, prevent mats and tangles, and distribute natural oils throughout the coat, which helps keep the skin health. Use the deshedding brush to remove undercoat weekly.
Bathing: Because of the thick fur, Japanese Spitz dogs don't require bathing too often. Generally speaking, once in every 3-4 weeks is enough to keep your kennel clean. Use a mild dog shampoo (we recommend Silky shampoo) and be sure to rinse thoroughly to avoid any skin irritation. Lastly, remember to blow dry to make sure the skin is completely dry to prevent skin issues.
Trimming: They also require occasional trimming or clipping, particularly around the pads and between the toes to prevent overgrowth and tangles and maintain a tidy appearance. Bring your kennel to a professional dog groomer every 3 months for a full grooming service to get the best result.
Nail Clipping: Japanese Spitz's nails don't require regular clipping. But whenever you do, be sure to use a sharp, proper nail clipper and avoid cutting too close to the quick. Leave the cutting to the Professional dog groomer to avoid traumatizing the puppy if nails bleed during cutting (which is very common).
Teeth Cleaning: Regular teeth cleaning is important for your dog to prevent dental problems. Brush their teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and use a dog-specific toothpaste.
Ear Cleaning: There is no special treatment for Japanese Spitz's ears. But it's important to clean their ears regularly with a gentle, dog-specific ear cleaner to prevent buildup of dirt and bacteria in the long run.
Overall, a Japanese Spitz has a thick coat that prevents and repels most dust and debris by themselves and doesn't require a lot of grooming and brushing. But nevertheless, it's best to check your dog regularly to prevent any health complications and bring your furry companion to vets regularly for a checkup.
