Austrian Pinscher Breed Maintenance
The Austrian Pinscher has a short, double coat and is an average shedder. He will need to be brushed at least once a week using a slicker brush, metal comb and when he is shedding heavily, a deshedder. In between brushings, a rubber mitt or a soft cloth can be used to rub him down and keep any loose or dead hairs from accumulating around the house. The Austrian Pinscher does not need to be bathed unless he has gotten into something smelly or is really dirty. Do not over-bathe your Austrian Pinscher, too many baths can cause his skin to dry out and cause itchiness. A dental plan should be discussed with your veterinarian. Daily brushing needs to be a part of his grooming. Yearly professional cleaning should also be done to ensure he has healthy teeth and gums. You need to plan on trimming his nails every few weeks to keep any toenail or feet problems from happening.
