Bernese Cattle Dog Breed Maintenance
Depending on which type of coat the Bernese Cattle Dog takes on, there will be different requirements for coat care. The Bernese Mountain Dog is a breed that sheds regularly and seasonally. They will need to be brushed weekly at the least, and daily during the shedding seasons. They should get baths when necessary. The Australian Cattle Dog has lower maintenance requirements. Their short coat should be easy to groom with a comb and firm bristle brush. They as well will only need baths if necessary. Aside from regular brushing, the Bernese Cattle Dog, like all other breeds, will need dental care, nail clipping and ear cleaning. The teeth brushing should take place every day if possible, and two or three times per week minimum. Their nails should get clipped as needed, which will be once or twice a month or maybe less if they wear down naturally. They should have their ears checked and cleaned out gently every week. This will help reduce the chance of infection.
