Alano Espanol Breed Maintenance
The Alano Espanol does not require a lot of grooming; usually brushing once a month is good enough unless they are shedding. They do shed seasonally. If they live in the home it would be better to brush them at least once a week to keep their coat free of dirt and loose hairs. Frequent brushing also helps keep any odors from becoming potent. When brushing, use a soft slicker brush or natural bristle brushes. They should not need to be bathed often to prevent dry skin from occurring. Bathe only two to three times a year and only use a mild shampoo. There are only two known molosser-type breeds that do not snore, slobber or drool: the Alano Espanol and the Cane Corso. Trim their nails every few weeks as needed using either toenail clippers or a nail grinder. Set up a dental routine including weekly teeth brushing to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
