Champion breeder Tip
From A Proffesional Lhasa Apso dog breeder on How to Treat Your Dog Like a Champion
Professional breeder and handler Sylvia provides tips for caring for your dog to ensure
that he or she is happy and healthy. Sylvia's super champion dog,
Ch. EL Minja's Thsang-Pa and Ch. EL Minja's Good as Gold as well Ch. EL Minja's Dream ON
are top winning Lhasa Apso in the breed with numerious titles.
Sylvia says that, "first and foremost, a dog's inner being is most important."
Begin by choosing the right dog for your lifestyle. I recommend that you talk with breeders,
vets, trainers and other reputable sources to find the best breed for you.
Be sure to keep your Lhasa Apso dog in good weight: not overweight or too thin. Your vet can help you
determine whether or not your pet is in good condition. Routine exercise is extremely
important for a dog's mind and body. Walking is a good way to exercise your dog and have fun at the same time.
Do not exercise puppies the same way as adults.
Do not over-exercise aging dogs, but do keep them active.
Routine check-ups with your veterinarian are very important.
Keep Lhasa Apso eyes and ears clean and nails trimmed. Seek veterinary care immediately
if you sense your dog has a health problem.
Groom your dog regularly: at least once a week for a coated dog.
Bathe routinely depending on the condition of the dog.
Good nutrition for your dog is extremely important; without good nutrition you will not have a healthy,
happy dog with a good coat, proper weight and in good condition.
I use a complete and balanced dog food - Pro Plan® Lamb and Rice brand dog food.
Use a quality food that fits the needs of your pet throughout puppyhood, adulthood and his senior years.
Most importantly, have fun and spend quality time with your Lhasa Apso dog and he will become an
important member of your family. If you teach him and love and care for him correctly,
he will be your unconditional friend and companion forever.
