American Foxeagle Breed Maintenance
The American Foxeagle has a coat that is easy to groom and maintain. Simply brush the short coat with a brush that has firm bristles, and bathe when necessary. When you are grooming the dog, it is an ideal opportunity to check the body for any cuts, bumps, or parasites such as fleas or ticks. It is also a good time to check the ears to ensure there is no buildup of debris within the ear.
Wipe the ear out gently with a soft damp cloth, and never poke deep into the inner ear in case of damage. Other maintenance issues are the feet and eyes. Check that the eyes are clear, and trim the toenails if the dog is starting to ‘click’ its way around the house. While your dog is a puppy, get them used to their feet being handled (most dogs don’t like their feet being touched) and their teeth cleaned, which will make grooming easier for later years with veterinarian health checks. Plenty of daily exercise completes the maintenance program, and a diet that is adequate but not too much, and this new breed will repay you with love, affection and everlasting loyalty.
