Baskimo Breed Maintenance
Having risen from two non-hypoallergenic breeds, the Baskimo is not hypoallergenic and is considered an average shedder. Depending on which parent this hybrid’s coat mostly resembles, you may have to brush them more than once a week. Otherwise, weekly brushing with a stiff brush and a hound mitt will help remove the dead and loose hair and keep your Baskimo looking and smelling lovely. These dogs are not known to develop a “doggy” odor, but regular brushing will help clean and distribute the Baskimo’s natural oils. While brushing your Baskimo’s coat, also check the ears and remove any built-up wax, dirt, or debris using a veterinarian approved cleaning solution. The Baskimo may develop ear infections due to its Basset Hound parent’s floppy ear style.
