Luxurious wool - the pride of the Pekingese, and many owners do not represent their handsome shorn. Although sometimes this is necessary.
Why cut Pekingese?
First, this breed desperately suffers in the heat and shears the dog and feels much better in the hottest months.
Secondly, such a need may arise in those moments when, for some reason, it becomes impossible to fully care for the hair of an animal. For example, when a dog is sick (especially skin diseases) or the owner is sick.
In the muddy season, wool can get very dirty on walks and the dog desperately protest against clothing. Also, if the dog is old, does not go to the exhibition or has bad hair, it is also better to cut it.
Types of Pekingese haircuts
The most common are Pekingese haircuts for a lion and a puppy, and in general every owner mows based on his skills and aesthetic preferences. The main thing is not to cut the Pekingese too short (shorter than 1.5 cm), because it is harmful to their skin - it remains vulnerable to the environment.
The simplest way to mow a Pekingese is to simply shorten the wool on the pants and skirt, leaving it untouched on the body. If the ears are too long and the dog comes on it, then this luxury is also shortened. Also wool is trimmed on elbows.
As a result, the Pekingese retains its exotic look, but becomes well-groomed and does not sweep the street with its hair.
If the "pedigree" appearance of the Pekingese is not important, you can cut it "under the puppy." This haircut has many options. For example, feathering on the paws can be cut or left, as well as hair on the ears. The main thing is that the wool should not be cut very short - no shorter than two centimeters.
How to cut Pekingese?
This is best done with a special dog grooming machine. Because the human machine can not overpower the rather tough Pekingese wool. Removable knives and nozzles of the machine cut any tangles and allow you to leave wool of any length.
