All about the Japanese Spitz

The Japanese Spitz is an alert, intelligent breed of dog and with good training becomes a very obedient companion.

However, if not shown proper leadership it can bark incessantly and misbehave.

This happy dog is usually good with children and usually gets along well with other dogs and household pets. This tough dog will act as a house protector and guardian.

Grooming a Japanese Spitz

Hair type: The longhaired coat of the Japanese Spitz has a thick under layer that is always pure white. The tail is covered with long hair and is carried curled over the back. The coat is short on the bottom half of the legs with breeches on the hind legs and feathering on the forelegs.

Daily coat care: The Japanese Spitz should be combed and brushed regularly using a slicker brush and a rake comb, every other day. This is a very tidy animal that should be bathed only when necessary. When the dog is shedding, use a comb with a double row of metal teeth to remove loose hairs from the under layer.

Recommended groom frequency: Your Japanese Spitz should be professionally groomed at least once every 8 weeks.

At Petmania Grooming Studios we have a full range of treatments available for your Japanese Spitz. If you get puppy, we recommend our Puppy’s First Visit at around four months, once your puppy has received all his vaccinations.

Diet

The Japanese Spitz has a relatively small appetite so choosing a well balanced dog food will help ensure that your dog gets all the nutrients it needs.

To help you to get choose the best food for your Spitz’ age and size, our pet care advisors are on hand instore to assist, or you can read about the different dog nutrition brands available instore here.

Activity Level

This is a busy little dog that will adapt himself to your lifestyle so long as you take the dog for a long, daily walk. In addition, it will enjoy regular chances to run off its lead in a safe area.

Where to get a Japanese Spitz

There are lots of places offering dogs or puppies for sale in Ireland, but we would always ask that you consider adopting a dog first. Our animal rescue partners have 100’s of rescue dogs and puppies seeking a forever home and would be delighted to introduce you to them.

However, if a rescue dog is not for you, we do recommend that you choose a registered breeder and seek Irish Kennel Club registration papers which will confirm that the dog has been bred to their strict code of ethics.
