  • Care

    Expect to brush Japanese Spitz regularly to maintain their coats. This breed sheds its thick undercoat twice a year. During these spring and fall "shedding seasons," they require extra brushing. The rest of the year, weekly brushing is sufficient. Avoid bathing Japanese Spitz too often because it can dry out their skin and strip it of natural (and beneficial) oils. In addition to trimming their nails and cleaning their ears, start a regular dental care routine that includes at-home teeth brushing. Establishing these habits when Japanese Spitz are puppies is part of a lifelong commitment to good dental hygiene.
