Japanese Chin Breed Daily Care

Japanese Chin's hair is elastic and stands erect on the body, especially around the neck, shoulders, and chest forming a thick mane of fur collar. The tail is heavily feathered. The Croup is covered with a thick coat. The head and muzzle are covered with a short coat, with the exception of the ears, which are heavily feathered. The forelegs are long with short hair, but the back of the legs are intermixed with many long frills. We brush our Japanese Chin hair up from the upper side of the bottom of our legs, thoroughly opening the lower part of the hair, and then brush the entire leg up. Shaggy dogs require constant grooming, at least three times a week, and with regular care, they can be charming.


When we feed Japanese Chins, we should keep the feeding quantity stable, not more and less, which may easily lead to undereating or overeating. (Of course, different dogs may eat different amounts, so it is up to pet owners to determine the exact amount.) In addition, the daily feeding time of Japanese Chins should be fixed, and should not be advanced or delayed. When it's time to eat, the dog's stomach secretion and gastrointestinal functioning will increase regularly, making hunger worse, and the dog's appetite will increase, which will contribute to active eating and digestion. Also, take care to ensure that the Japanese Chin is active on a daily basis. It is best to take it out for a walk 2-3 times a day. It is recommended to take it out for a walk when you get up in the morning or in the evening. If the dog is kept at home for a long period of time and lacks exercise, the dog will become irritable, even mentally weak, sluggish, and even sick.

When your Japanese Chin dog catches a cold, keep him warm by getting him dressed, adding padding, keeping him off the cold floor, and giving him a small mat to lie on, before the cold gets worse. When dogs catch a cold, their resistance is weak, so the owner should take timely measures to avoid aggravating the condition, to give them a moderate dose of cold medicine to alleviate the dog’s cold symptoms

How do we get Japanese Chin on the toilet? We had to prepare a large flat plate, put a plastic sheet on the bottom, put some old newspapers with traces of your dog’s urine on them, and put them in the corner of the hallway or in the toilet or bathroom. I tend to get this Chin when I’m just waking up or after I’ve eaten. When the dog is about to relieve himself, he will smell the ground. At this point, he should be taken to the dog urinal immediately. If we see a dog not in the prescribed toilet defecation in other places, should immediately put its nose on the defecation place, and severely reprimand, while the hand gently spanked its bottom, as a warning. In the place of defecate, everybody should wash clean with soapy water, purify fetid odor. Otherwise, the puppy will smell the smell of its own excrement and will urinate and defecate here. We just have to do it over and over again for a week or two, three, or four weeks at a slower pace. In addition to going out, the dog will usually defecate in the prescribed places. When the dog is done with the Poop, we can dispose of the two newspapers and the poop on the upper level, leaving one with a slight fecal odor.

When we take care of the Japanese Chin, we should pay attention to watch out for dog food and the environment. This kind of dog is basically a lifetime of eating dog food, its stomach is relatively fragile, people’s food can be fatal to it, so we have to choose for it in the supermarket specifically designed for it. Generally speaking, there are three kinds of dog food in the supermarket, puppy, adult, and old dog. The prices and ingredients of these three kinds of dog food are different. Puppy dog food is relatively rich in nutrition to meet the dog’s Daily Growth Needs, adult dog food is not so rich in nutrition, because this time the dog has stopped developing so the main on a full stomach. Dog Food for old dogs is relatively easy to digest, because the functions of the organs of old dogs have aged, so they need to eat some dog food that is easier to digest, it’s up to the owners to pick and choose according to the age of the dog. Japanese Chin doesn’t have to work out as much as most large dogs do to burn off the extra energy. Just have Japanese Chin move around the house and buy him some toys and he’ll have a good time. We’re trying to keep this Japanese Chin Dog on a diet that doesn’t allow him to mess around.
