Affengriffon Breed Maintenance
These dogs need daily walks that should not be too short but do not need to be very long either. They do need to spend some time socializing with their humans. Because they are small, these dogs are well suited to apartment life. Both the Affenpinscher and Brussels Griffon have high grooming needs, and it is expected that the Affengriffon will be the same. They will need weekly brushing to keep their shaggy coats from becoming tangled, as well as to catch the few hairs that they shed. Besides regular grooming, this hybrid breed, like all other dogs, should have their nails trimmed as often as needed. If they don’t wear down naturally, they should be trimmed once or twice in a month. Dental hygiene will also need to be maintained. To do this, dogs should have their teeth brushed at least one or two times per week, although daily toothbrushing is best.
