Coat & Coat Care

Their coats are usually soft but dense & medium in length. The Shichon coat stands away from the body which gives it a puffy appearance. They are considered hypoallergenic and are great for individuals who suffer from allergies.

Daily brushing is recommended to help keep their fine hair from tangling or matting. It’s also important to keep hair removed from around their eyes to help avoid eye infection or irritation. Grooming every 5 – 8 weeks will help to maintain their healthy coat.
