The maintenance of the Poochin totally depends on the volume of its coat. A heavier coat makes it difficult to groom and maintain. The amount of hair which they have in the coat makes it a necessity for the owners to brush them several times during a week such as to avoid tangles. Like its parent, the Poodle, the Poochin is also said to have hyperallergic qualities and is not known to shed a lot. Time to time baths need to be given to the dog as only brushing does not clean them from the dirt that they gather in their coat, it must, however, be noted that one must always us a hypoallergenic dog shampoo such that they do not develop skin issues. It is also advised to towel dry them after baths and to trim their nails once a month. It is advised to brush their teeth twice a week at least such that there is no dental infection.
