Grooming Your Havanese
Whether you show or not your Havanese will need to be Groomed Bathed and Nails, Ears and Foot Pads maintained.
I've put this into several sections - Click on the link to go to each section. Not all sections completed yet.
Grooming time and coat loss:
It will depend on how rough your dog plays and whether they are in bushes, mud, twigs etc, but for the show dog this has been my experience with a full coated dog going through coat changes
Brush your dog every day it takes you 10 minutes.
Brush every two days about 20 minutes, you will do some de-matting and lose a little coat, primarily undercoat
Three days can take 45 minutes more mats and coat loss - undercoat but also expect to lose ear coat due to mats and some top coat
Once a week can take an hour to 1 1/2 hour, you will lose undercoat and have some very large mats to deal with and start to get breakage on top coat
