Bernese Rottie Breed Maintenance
The Bernese Rottie will have different maintenance levels depending on which parent they are more like. The Bernese Mountain Dog sheds all year round but heaviest during the changes in season. Therefore, you should brush them weekly, and more often during the fall and spring. They only need to have baths every few months, unless they like to play around in the dirt. The Rottweiler as well will need weekly brushing, more often twice a year when their shedding increases. Bathe them only when needed. Besides grooming, all dogs, including the Bernese Rottie should have their ears cleaned and checked at least once every month to prevent the development of infections. Teeth brushing is also a must, and should be done daily if possible. Two or three times a week should be minimum. Trim your dog’s nails as needed, which will be once or twice a month, unless they wear down on their own, in which case it can be done less often.
