Q:

Do Lhasa Apsos shed their hair?

A:

Full Answer

Getting a puppy cut makes the Lhasa Apsos fur easier to deal with as it does not require daily brushing and does not shed as much. Regardless of whether or not the owner gives the Lhasa Apsos a puppy cut, the hair on the face needs to be trimmed on a weekly basis so that the dog can see correctly. Lhasa Apsos are high maintenance dogs when it comes to grooming and hair care needs.
