American Leopard Hound Breed Maintenance
The American Leopard Hound has a dense double coat that will shed seasonally. Since his coat is short, when he sheds the hairs tend to float through the air and land on the furniture and clothes. It is best to wipe down his coat using a soft, damp cloth or brush him using a natural bristle brush or a soft slicker brush once a week. Since he has ears that hang, be sure to check for dirt or moisture weekly and clean as needed to ensure infections do not set in. A routine dental plan should be put in place to ensure his teeth and gums remain healthy. Check his toenails every few weeks and trim as needed. The American Leopard Hound is not a hypoallergenic breed and he does have somewhat of a doggy smell. Baths should be done every few months or when he gets really dirty from hunting or working in the fields.
