Dogo Argentino Breed Maintenance
The Dogo Argentino is relatively simple to maintain. Grooming is easy because of his short, smooth coat and he will require a bath every three months or when he is dirty from hunting. To bathe an Dogo Argentino, a mild shampoo is best to avoid skin irritation. Brush a Dogo using a natural bristle brush or a grooming mitt once a week to remove any loose hair and dead skin cells. A leave-in coat conditioner and/or polish can be used after brushing to add sheen to the Dogo Argentino’s coat. Nails should be trimmed regularly, generally every two to three weeks. Nail grinding can be done rather than clipping if he is touchy about having his nails cut. Ears should be cleaned once a week, probably when they are being brushed. Natural ears need to be kept dry to prevent infections from occurring. Regular teeth brushing and gum checks will be necessary to keep the Dogo Argentino’s dental health from deteriorating.
