Berner Chow Breed Maintenance
The Berner Chow is a canine hybrid which will require at least moderate maintenance. He will need to be brushed daily due to the moderate to high levels of shedding which will be worse during certain seasons. Frequent brushing will help keep the shedding under better control, will reduce the opportunity for hair matting to occur and will remove debris. Shampooing or bathing the Berner Chow should only be done when necessary so as not to remove the natural oils from the coat. The Berner Chow is not hypoallergenic so all attempts should be made to keep up with grooming to reduce shedding to protect those members of the household who are sensitive or who have breathing difficulties. Routine and regular eye, ear and teeth examinations should be done to keep your Berner Chow as healthy and fit as possible.
