Basset Bordeaux Breed Maintenance
The Basset Bordeaux is not considered to be hypoallergenic and can excessively shed. Its coat is dense, short, and smooth. It is recommended to brush its coat daily with a rubber curry brush which will eliminate dead hairs and cut down on the shedding. Using a slicker brush may be useful during times of heavy fur loss. Bathing your Basset Bordeaux should be limited to every 6 to 8 weeks, unless it is excessively dirty. The ears should be regularly wiped and cleaned to avoid excessive moisture within that can lead to yeast proliferation. Its teeth should be brushed weekly. Its nails should be trimmed or filed every 2 to 3 weeks to prevent overgrowth or cracks in the nail. The Basset Bordeaux is known to drool; it is important to maintain cleanliness around the mouth area to cut down on odor and bacteria formation.
