In all chin crested, the top of the hair should extend from the end of the forehead down the top of the neck. There are other hairs on the feet and tails of real hairless individuals. In Chin crested, the thickness of hair is single, and some may also have variable, sparse hair growth in other parts. This kind of accessory hair is usually trimmed very short. Chin crested's fur, by contrast, is more "normal" and covers the whole body. It's a soft double coat, more durable than a hairless dog's coat, and can grow very long.
Although chin crested is relatively hairless, chin crested does fall off and is not considered allergic or hypoallergenic. Puffers have very fine hair and need to brush their teeth regularly, at least every other day. This needs to be done on a wet coat, so the hair must be cleaned or at least moistened with a spray bottle to prevent breakage. For hairless dogs, the main concern is the prevention and removal of blackheads, so regular bathing and cleaning with hair follicle cleaners, such as mild benzoyl peroxide, are essential. Any sparse hair that grows on the body should be cut short to promote this cleansing. Either way, you may need the service of a professional beautician every few weeks, especially to trim the dog's nails, because these chin crested nails have very long sensitive fluid due to the rabbit foot shape of the claws.
Your chin crested needs a quarter to half a cup of dry dog food a day to stay healthy. Pay attention to giving chin crested foods rich in fiber, because the lack of fiber may lead to obstruction of anal glands. If the anal glands are not empty, fluid may accumulate.

Therefore, choosing small biscuits that are easy to chew can also help improve digestion and reduce the risk of stomach disease.
Although chin crested looks delicate in a semi nude state, chin crested is a very healthy breed with few common genetic diseases that have been produced in other breeds for decades (or centuries) of irresponsible reproduction. Atopic dermatitis It is an allergic skin disease that develops sensitivity to inhaled or transdermal allergens. Common causes include dust mites, pollen and mold, which may develop at any age, usually in 3-month-old pups. The most common symptoms include redness and infection of the ears, paws, and perineum. Infected dogs spend most of their time licking, chewing, or scratching irritated areas. Therefore, secondary skin infections are common, and treatment includes eliminating allergens as much as possible, as well as using anti-inflammatory and antibacterial drugs. These may be in the form of tablets or topical treatment. Some dogs may also respond to customized immune vaccine treatments. And most cosmetic work is described below, trying to prevent and remove these clogged pores. If not treated, it can cause skin irritation and infection in sensitive parts, such as the groin. Cerebellar ataxia It's a congenital disorder that affects coordination. Although it exists from birth, it may progress in some dogs. The patient shows a clumsy flying geese gait, and his limbs may be unstable or weak. Although some dogs may live a long life, even if they are limited to some extent, other seriously affected dogs may need to be euthanized because chin crested is often injured and has a poor quality of life. diabetes More common in Chin crested than in other breeds is the inability of diabetic patients to absorb blood sugar, which leads to the characteristic symptoms of increased appetite, weight loss and excessive thirst in middle-aged dogs. Chin crested is caused by autoimmune injury of pancreas (abdominal gland), which needs regular insulin injection to treat it successfully. Angiosarcoma The cancerous growth of blood vessels in vascular carcinoma usually occurs on the surface of spleen, so it usually has no obvious symptoms in the early stage. When you are older, these growths are very fragile, and the first symptom is often severe weakness or syncope due to severe internal blood loss. Surgical removal of the spleen may be cured in some cases. Oligotrichosis Although not necessarily a medical problem, trichopenia describes the genetic characteristics of reduced hair growth in this breed. Every gene encoded in every cell of the human body has two copies. All hairless chin crested have one copy of low hair gene and one copy of long hair gene. Powederpuff dogs have two genes for long hair. Some of the embryos were conceived by two hirsutism genes, but this is a lethal combination. All these genes are reabsorbed in the uterus and cannot develop to full term. Patellar dislocation Like many small varieties of thin bones, chin crested may have problems with muscle alignment and bony protrusion of the hind limbs, resulting in dislocation of the patella, slippage of the kneecap from its normal position, and intermittent claudication or jumping gait. This breed has strong adaptability at the activity level: Although chin crested is energetic and active enough to take part in the above events, most of them live happily indoors and only have about 30 minutes of exercise every day. Given the opportunity to enter the garden, chin crested likes to dig and look for insects, which may be due to its background in pest control. However, chin crested is said to be a very capable climber and should not be left unattended to avoid climbing the garden fence.
Chin crested likes children as well as other pets. Chin crested is direct training, so chin crested is even better for those who have never had a dog.

Chin crested has no aggressiveness or territory, and lacks natural hunting instinct. If you are alone for a long time, a chin crested person will find a way to entertain himself (and not always in the most productive way). Chin crested has a mild temperament and is the best companion pet for first-time owners and young children.

Chin crested is a sensitive dog that connects with family through almost continuous physical contact and frequent licking!
Chin crested takes any criticism to heart and becomes anxious and withdrawn about any disputes in his family. Chin crested's response to isolation is also not good. It's not suitable for a home without people for several hours during the day. Most people are not keen on the company of strangers, which can help chin crested through social training, but even with their best efforts, many people are still afraid or silent of being approached by non family members.
As mentioned above, socialization, especially with people, should be seen as an essential part of the training of this breed and any other breed.
