Armant Breed Maintenance
The Armant has a coarse, medium to long coat that is dense in the colder months and protects them from the weather when they out with the flock. They should be brushed once a week to keep the coat looking healthy and remove any dirt. Use a slicker brush, natural bristle brush or a pin brush and a metal comb when grooming. The Armant’s coat does not generally tangle, but if not kept brushed, matting can occur. Armants with longer coats should be brushed every day or every other day to prevent the longer coat from tangling. They do shed heavily and require more attention to grooming when they are shedding. Clean their ears each week, especially if they have ears that hang down. Clip their nails every few weeks or as needed. Do not bathe the Armant often; doing so can cause their skin to become dry and flaky. When bathing the Armant, use a shampoo that is strictly for coarse coats.
