COAT & GROOM TIPS

Regular brushing and combing is essential in order to remove substantial wooly hair shed from the dense undercoat, and not only the outer coarse guard coat which protects the undercoat. The density of the hair coat can be misleading to novice groomers or owners of this breed; it is dense.

Pekingese dogs may acquire stained hairs around their eyes from watering between grooming appointments. You may need to snip some of the stained hairs away very carefully with scissors. As always, when scissoring or clipping near any dog's eyes, you must have solid control of head movements by properly gripping their muzzle firmly, yet gently.

As part of the dog's final groom brush the coat up and add volume. A part should be combed into the tail and then allow it to fall naturally over the back.

The muzzle of the Pekingese should have whiskers and excess hair trimmed off. It is important to apply corn starch to wrinkle after the dog is dry to ensure no moisture is left in the nose wrinkle as this can cause problems. You should use extreme caution if you place a Pekingese in a cage dryer to get excess moisture out of the coat after hand drying this breed can not tolerate heat. When had drying use caution around eyes. Submitted by Carrie Forsyth -Roll-About Pekingese.
