As summer is approaching I decided to buy a good pair of regular and thinning shears . These dogs have so much coat volume it is so easy for them to be too hot. So for their comfort I trimmed their coats. Most pekingese owners shave their peke down for summer.
I didn’t want to shave them at all as I wanted to keep most length and really cut down the volume ( a shaved peke isn’t a peke anymore to my opinion)
I bought these shears, it came with thinning shears, and two size regular shears. The price tag was reasonable , $199 , made in Japan.
I started with D’Artagnan as he is the fluffiest.
This was my first time cutting their coat. Overall I am satisfied with the result. He let me cut his hair and didn’t move . I will do this trim for every summer.
Aramis ‘s before after effect is less as he doesn’t have much volume.
But this trim refresh the coat to grow back healthy.

I really love the scent of the new black passion line shampoo and conditioner, however it doesn’t last long on my dogs coat. I would say after 2 or 3 days the smell is gone. I bought this non alcohol perfume which has a duplicate scent of the shampoo and conditioner so I can make the coat smells argan oil anytime. Simply shake well and spray on the coat.
This is a mix of product to removove tights tangles that you don’t want to cut.
In a bowl mix 1 part pink grapefruit, 1 part pek conditioner, 1 part ph balance and 1 part k101 . Add water , shake well ( can be done with a hand mixer as the pink grapefruit doenst melt well ) The consistency should be little thick.
Apply the mixture to the dog’s dry coat.
Quickly brush with a slicker brush , don’t try to remove tangles.Rinse well.
Shampoo the dog with the shampoo of your choice. I use the maintenance line banana for medium coats.(1:5)
Rinse the shampoo.
Now it’s time to apply conditioner to the coat.
Mix 1 part ph balance, 1 part pek conditioner, 1 part k101.
Add water and mix well.
Pour the mixture to the entire coat in the direction of the hair growth.
Blow dry with a pet dryer on high level so the tangles open and get away from the skin.
Brush the tangles out then the coat and finish drying as usual.
