The Lhasa Apso is a compact dog with a voluminous long coat. They are lively and quite amusing to watch, moving in a jaunty way with their fluffy tails carried over their backs. With an almost toy-like appearance, this breed is a surprisingly dedicated guard dog and a mischievous companion.
The Lhasa Apso can follow a normal dog diet although it is prone to obesity and should not be overfed.
The grooming regime required for this dog is not for the faint hearted. A daily brushing is required to maintain their coats. This is recommended from a young age to accustom them to being thoroughly handled. Both the undercoat and the topcoat should be groomed in order to prevent knots, matted hair and skin conditions. The Lhasa Apso needs regular bathing. To reduce grooming time, the coat can be trimmed short.
