Lhasa dog (details)
In order to maintain the beauty of Lhasa dog's hair, not only should we pay more attention to diet, but also reasonable bathing and beauty treatment is crucial. According to different breeds of dogs, the length, density, softness and hardness of hair are all different, and of course, the beauty care of dogs will be quite different. So today, let's talk about the grooming methods of Lhasa dogs according to their fur characteristics.
White is the most precious coat color of Lhasa dogs. The coat is straight and hard to touch, the upper coat is long and thick, and the lower coat is rich. Along the back bone, the coat is clearly separated from the left and right. The limbs are covered with dense and rich long hair, the forelimbs are straight, and the hind limbs are very muscular. The feet are firm and round, and the meat toes are particularly thick. The tail is dense, the tail heel is high, the tail curls upwards, and the tip of the hair is easily tangled, so it must be combed and trimmed regularly.
Lhasa dog's fur is a little brittle, easy to break and fall off, and its face is also long, so it is easy to cover both eyes and affect the sight. Therefore, these long hairs should be ligated to prevent breaking and falling off, which can also improve the appearance.
The method of ligation is: firstly, the long hair on the bridge of the nose is separated to both sides along the midline with a comb, and then the hair comb from the nose to the corner of the eye is divided into upper and lower parts. From the corner of the eye to the back of the head, the hair slicer holds the long hair from the eyes to the top of the head with his left hand, and combs it with a detailed comb. This will make the hair fluffy, tighten the hair on the top of the head, tie a rubber band, and tie a small bow. You can also comb the long hair of the head into a knot or braid it into two braids on the left and right sides.
The appearance of a standard Lassa dog should be covered with long hair, with a round skull, wide width, big ears and a long and beautiful coat. The root of the ear should be slightly lower than the top of the head, and the distance between the ears should be large. The body is round and long, the back is short, but it is level. The neck is gently tilted, the head is raised, the limbs are short, and it is covered by fur. The tail is towering, mostly feathery. Curl up in the direction of the back, long hair is dense and cannot be curled, and the undercoat is wool-like.
According to this feature, when grooming Lassa dogs, the coat of the body is separated from the midline of the back to both sides, and a proper amount of grease is applied to the left and right 3cm of the back line to prevent the coat from breaking. In order to prevent the tangling of the abdominal hair and facilitate walking, cut off about 1cm of the coat under the abdomen with scissors. In order to make the upturned tail look better, cut off the 0.5cm wide coat at the tail root. Excess hair around the feet should be cut off as much as possible. Let the dog stand on the trimming table, and trim the lower part (hem) of its body hair to be slightly longer than the body height (that is, the length of the hair is slightly longer than the body height), but too long will affect its movement and not give full play to its lively characteristics.
