Grooming

Lhasa Apsos need a considerable amount of grooming because of their long flowing coats, particularly if their coats are kept full length. They need at least a daily brush and comb to remove the knots from their coats.

Many Lhasa Apso owners prefer to have their dogs professionally groomed, and many prefer to keep their Lhasa’s coat clipped to avoid the knots and tangles that come with a longer coat. But to look their best, Lhasa Apsos need their long, flowing locks, and the only way to keep the Lhasa’s coat the way it should be is by meticulous daily grooming.
