American Eagle Dog Breed Maintenance
The American Eagle Dog has a beautiful dense coat and is classified as an average shedder. The coat is easy to groom and your dog should be brushed daily to keep it at its best. There will be hair around the home so you need to decide if you are happy to be forever vacuuming. A bath is only necessary when your dog really needs it, for example, when she has rolled in something smelly or has covered herself in mud. Once a week you need to check the ears to ensure that there is no inflammation present, and give them a gentle wipe with a damp cloth. Don’t push anything into the inner ear in case you cause injury. Like you, your dog needs to keep her teeth clean and a brushing three times a week should be fine. It is advisable to train your dog when they are a puppy to get used to you checking the ears, teeth, and the eyes as it will help later on when she is matured. These dogs do enjoy their food and anyone else’s if they can persuade them to hand it over, so watch for weight gain.
