Coat

The Lhasa Apso is known for its glossy, silky, long and dense coat. Although the most common are white and gold, the breed also has colors such as sand, honey, dark gray and black. It needs daily brushing so that the hair does not tangle and also requires care in the eye region, as the hair can interfere with your vision when not trimmed properly.

Taking Care of a Lhasa Apso

Special care must be taken with the Lhasa's fur. Because they are dense, they need regular baths and daily brushing to avoid tangling - it is worth remembering that knots give pets a lot of pain, in addition to discomfort. Some tutors prefer to shave the animal which, despite being without the exuberant and long hair, makes maintenance easier, especially if the animal is very exposed to external areas. The baby clipper is a favorite for Lhasa parents, offering a puppy-like appearance even to adults. Speaking of outdoor areas, the Lhasa Apso is a puppy to have indoors, it cannot and should not be raised in backyards, for example. Despite being very playful and needing daily stimulation, it is not such an active animal and prefers light walks, not too long. They also love to play with stuffed animals. So it also adapts very well to living in small environments.
