Belgian Shepadoodle Breed Maintenance
The Belgian Shepadoodle, like just about every other canine breed, will require appropriate regular teeth cleaning to avoid gum disease and tooth loss. Grooming maintenance will likely be moderate, ranging from brushing twice weekly and bathing when needed to the daily grooming required by the Standard Poodle parent’s contribution. Since the Belgian Shepherd parent will contribute significant shedding issues, brushing at least twice a week will help reduce the complications caused by this shedding issue. This is especially true for those households which have family members who are sensitive to animal hair or have asthmatic or other breathing conditions. Because the ear set will likely be folded over, a contribution from the Standard Poodle parent, at least weekly ear checks and cleaning should be done to avoid unnecessary ear infection problems which go with this type of ear set. The smell level is low for both parent breeds.
