Afaird Breed Maintenance
This hybrid may need to be brushed a few times weekly in order to keep ahead of potential tangles that may develop in the silky coat. Afairds are longhaired dogs that are seasonal shedders who require additional grooming, on top of the brushing, every 4 weeks. A general trimming of the fur all over the body will keep your Afaird mat free and looking healthy. Bathing may be done whenever the dog gets really dirty; however, as a general rule, he can be bathed once a month. As with all dogs, ears and teeth need to be cleaned and maintained in order to prevent infections from occurring. This hybrid in particular will benefit from regular observation and cleaning of the ears. Additionally, fur around the footpads and nails may need to be trimmed every 4 weeks in order to keep the feet free of debris or bacterial build-up.
