  • Care

    The Chinese Crested's skin is prone to irritations, allergies, and even sunburn. So, gentle grooming—using skin products specifically designed for the breed—is necessary. Daily brushing will keep the powderpuff Chinese Crested's coat fluffy. But understand that the breed's coat is not like that of most other dogs. The undercoat is shorter than the overlay, which is the opposite of most breeds with hair. On the upside, this trait makes brushing easier. On the downside, the coat mats quickly.

    A Chinese Crested puppy or dog can bring a lot of joy. Maintaining a Chinese Crested in good health can be expensive. Get savings, deals and cash back at vets and pet stores when you pay for pet care with the Sincere debit card. Personalized just for dog parents.
