American Foxhound Breed Maintenance
Maintaining your American Foxhound is relatively easy if you lead an active lifestyle. Give them attention and exercise and take care of their hygiene needs to have a fine addition to the family. The Foxhound’s coat is hard and straight, and they shed moderately so you don’t have to groom and brush them as often as other breeds. However, brushing your Foxhound can help you bond and will also reduce the frequency of required baths. Brushing your dog will also help cut down on the dog odor smell so often characteristic of hounds. A dog’s skin is far more sensitive than people’s, and the Foxhound should only be bathed when necessary; like after running through the mud. Brush their teeth twice a week at minimum to stay ahead of dental issues. This active dog may wear down their nails, but check them weekly for tears and grind or clip them as necessary.
