As part of the Bichon group, Lowchens are often first recognised by their distinctive appearance and shaved back legs and body. They are small in frame yet very active. Lowchens are known to do well in obedience and agility trials.
Lowchens can follow a normal doggy diet and do not require special supplements or feeding patterns.
The Little Lion Dog has long been clipped in a "king of beasts" fashion, shaved from the mid torso but with a fluffy tail. Clipping is generally done by a professional or the owner if they wish with an electric shaver to reveal the skin. They will need to be brushed twice weekly and professionally groomed every four to six weeks. Lowchens need to be bathed at least on a fortnightly basis if not more regularly and owners must be wary of the sunburn on the shaved area of the dog. To reduce trimming time Lowchens can be entirely trimmed.
