Full of Energy!

Rowdy-LassaApso

Rowdy is full of energy and fun.

This week’s Klip Joint Dog of the Week is Rowdy, a very friendly Lhasa Apso. He has such a great temperment, we really have fun when he comes to visit.

The Lhasa Apso is a small, hardy dog with a friendly, assertive manner. They are devoted little dogs that are affectionate with their masters. They can be very obedient and respond well to motivational training. They have a long coat and need to be brushed about once a day to prevent matting. Some owners opt to cut the coats short for easier grooming. Check the feet for matting and for foreign matter stuck there. Clean the eyes and ears meticulously, for they tend to tear. This breed sheds very little.

The Lhasa Apso originated in Tibet in the Himalayan Mountains hundreds of years ago. It’s named after the sacred city of Lhasa. For years the breed remained solely bred in Tibet by holy men and nobles. It was used as a watchdog in temples and monasteries. The dog was considered sacred and many believed that when its master died the master’s soul entered the Lhasa Apso’s body.

Whether your dog is shaggy or short, it will be clean and beautiful after a visit to the Klip Joint!
