Grooming a Lhasa apso requires leaving the dog's head fur longer, shaving between the nose, trimming the ears bluntly and shaving the belly and potty path with a number 10 blade. Keep the feet of a Lhasa apso round, and shave between the pads with instructions from a professional dog groomer in this free video on grooming dogs.
Hi, this is Sammi at the Utah Animal Care Center in West Bountiful, Utah. I'm here today talking about how to groom Lhasa Apsos. We have Yoshi here to help us demonstrate. The body can be cut to be any desired length. A lot of times people like them short for easier maintenance. A lot of times their head can be left longer. You can tie it up with a bow or barrette if it's in their eyes. For in between their nose, you'll want to shave it with a number ten blade to give it a nice, clean appearance. For their ears, you'll want to leave them long with a blunt cut to make them square. Their tail is left long and natural, and trimmed slightly to keep in clean. For our potty path, you'll want to use a number ten blade and also shave the belly with that as well. Their feet are kept round, with shaving in between the pads to keep them nice and clean. You'll want to be sure to pluck their ears out regularly, and trim their nails. They should be groomed approximately every six weeks.
