The Xoloitzcuintli Mexican Hairless Dog is a loyal dog sometimes nervous but generally full of character, a dog most comfortable indoors.

As they have hair only on their heads feet and tail grooming needs for this dog are very different.

Grooming Tips

Brushing as required but not a big task using a Soft Bristle Brush or Comb.

Bathing is required frequently use a very mild shampoo, massage rather scrub into the skin and then rinse well and gently towel dry, and once gently towel dried we would recommend you moisturise their skin with an oil free hypoallergenic moisturiser.

If taking the dog out in the sun always apply a dog friendly sun block to their skin.

Nails will need trimming monthly and if not comfortable in doing this yourself please visit your local groomer.

What you will require for grooming

Once your dog is familiarised and comfortable with your Roses Grooming and Drying Brush you can increase the heat setting to full and increase the speed to high, but note when drying around the eyes and ears only use medium heat and low power.

The permanent IONIC feature will ensure great condition to your dog’s coat

We know that following these simple instructions you will soon be getting great results and you and your dog will enjoy these sessions which can help create an excellent bond between you and your dog and of course keep them looking great and smelling good most of the time.

We look forward to hearing your experiences and of course receiving pictures of your dogs after your Grooming and Pampering Sessions.
