Bernefie Breed Maintenance
The Bernefie requires moderate maintenance. He will need to be brushed several times each week to keep his hair from matting and to remove debris. He will not need to be bathed except when absolutely necessary so as not to remove the natural oils from his coat. As with almost every canine breed and hybrid, regular and routine teeth examinations and cleaning is necessary to avoid periodontal disease and tooth loss. Regular checking and cleaning of his ears will also be required to keep them healthy. Your Bernefie will shed at moderate levels with this left increasing with season shedding. This hybrid is not hypoallergenic so care must be taken if there are asthmatics or family members in the household who have other breathing problems. They have a low or average smell level.
