Clean your brushes and comns on a regular base, this prevents the coat from getting static.

Keep in mind that it takes almost 2 years for every hair you pull out during bathing and grooming to grow back to normal length.

If properly trained early as soon as they are a puppy, the Lhasa Apso will come appreciate bathing, hair combing and clipping.

Teach them to lie down on their side while grooming them. It will take some time before they will accept lying on their side, they fist need to get used to grooming and drying.

What is needed for drying/ grooming?

Metal comb with smaller and larger side
Small soft slicker brush.
Tail comb
Pin brush with rounded tip pins
Face comb
And of course a dryer!

 

 

While drying carefully tease the mats out with your fingers or of with the soft slicker brush. Be careful not to tear any hair out. Don't use a comb to remove mats. Always brush the mats from the bottom and not the top. Brushing from the top upwards is uncomfortable to the dog (you're brushing it the wrong way, for one thing), and brushing from the top downwards just makes the mat even worse and even painful. After all mats are removed, you can brush the coat from the top to the bottom with the pin brush.

 

The soft slicker brush is also used for the legs and feet. Here you brush upwards.

 

Create a nice part on the nose and head. Comb the moustache with the face comb to remove tears. Stand your Lhasa Apso straight on a table and stand directly behind him or her. Using the end tooth of a metal comb and beginning at the base of the dog's neck, run the tooth of the comb straight down the spine, allowing the coat to fall to either side

 

Stand your Lhasa Apso on the table and brush through the entire coat
