Comb your Japanese Spitz regularly

Regular grooming also gives your Japanese Spitz a thorough physical examination. So you can find small problems before they become big ones. The Japanese Spitz should be checked once or twice a week, depending on your dog’s fur texture and exercise environment, although it may need to be done every day when your dog is unhairing. However, sometimes Japanese Spitz also needs to take a bath (however, if you take a bath for a Japanese Spitz who is depilating, you must be careful. If your fluffy hair is wet, it will turn dull and become a nightmare. It will take several hours to clean it).
