American Blue Gascon Hound Breed Maintenance
This breed should only be bathed when dirt or smell becomes noticeable, about two or three times a year, as overly frequent bathing can strip the coat of its naturally protective oils. Areas where the skin is loose and falls in folds should be checked for moisture as mildew can sometimes form in these skin folds and cause irritation and infection. While the coat is short, it is also dense, and brushing is needed two or three times a week in order to keep the coat shiny and shedding under control. It is also important to check the ears for dirt and moisture on a regular basis to avoid infection.
