American Foxy Dane Breed Maintenance
The short and hard texture of the fur of the American Foxy Dane requires regular brushing which will keep this canine looking sharp. They don’t require set bathing rules, only needing a bath when necessary which allows their coat to retain its protective coating to deal with the elements. It is good practice to check the dog's ears and eyes when you are grooming them. Also, check for any cuts or lumps that may be bothering your dog. When they are young puppies, get them used to being groomed, and having their ears, eyes and teeth examined. This practice will make it easier as the dog grows in size. The nails need regular trimming if your dog is not wearing them down, but be careful when trimming not to trim to close to where the base is. If you hurt them, they may not be so keen to allow you to touch their paws again. The American Foxy Dane does need a lot of exercise as they are an energetic dog, a trait taken especially from the American Foxhound parentage. A good daily run and a well fenced yard to allow them to have play time with the children are perfect. With plenty of exercise they will be well behaved inside, having worn off all their abundant energy.
