American Alsatian Breed Maintenance
The American Alsatian has been bred to have a low odor and their thick coat is quite effective at repelling dirt and debris, so bathing is only required on an occasional basis. The outer coat is somewhat coarse and moderate in length with an extremely thick undercoat that comes in for the winter months but is almost completely shed during the spring, reducing the undercoat to almost nothing. While this breed requires brushing every few days year-round to manage their moderate shedding, they will most likely need brushing daily if not more often when they are shedding their undercoat and will still generally leave a trail of hair. Care of the teeth and nails should be done on a consistent basis with the teeth needing brushing a few times a week and the nails requiring trimming monthly.
