American Gointer Breed Maintenance
The American Gointer requires a minimal amount of grooming. This is a dog who can shed and is not hypoallergenic. A weekly brushing will cut down on hair left behind on floors and furniture, as well as remove debris, and keep the coat shiny and healthy. An occasional bath will keep the coat clean, and help to reduce any smell. Do not bathe too often, however, as it can strip the Gointer’s coat of its natural oils, causing dry and flaky skin. Be sure to regularly clean the ears, and keep them dry, as this breed’s floppy ears are prone to infections.
