I don't have a long haired male Chi, but I do have a Maltese that I do "manscape" to help him stay cleaner down there. I also do my long hair female Chi, keeping her all trim.

That hair helps direct the 'stream' so it doesnt get all over.

And is supposed to help prevent infection - prevent debris from entering the urethra. So don't cut it too short... a little trim is fine

My short haired male has a tuft at the tip that makes like a little cone around the opening. I never cut that because I assume it helps keep out debris like the other poster said. Also I thought it might hurt growing back in and itching. Do you have a long or short haired dog?

He is a long hair; and it was longer than his legs - so I trimmed it. I just wanted to make sure first.

Thanks!! =)

Groomers call that a 'pee string'. ha. It actually helps to direct the flow of urine away from the body, so it does have a purpose. If it's cut all the way back, the urine will just spray out and get on his tummy, legs, etc. So definitely leave it. A little trim is fine. A little pee string is MUCH more sanitary than having pee all over his underside and getting on his legs.
