Black and Tan Virginia Foxhound Breed Maintenance
As with all dog breeds, the Black and Tan Virginia Foxhound has certain needs and requires maintenance to keep them happy and healthy. When these dogs are younger, they need to be fed more often. A puppy between the ages of 8 and 12 weeks should be fed four times per day, and three times per week if they are between the ages of 3 and 6 months. A dog who is aged between 6 months and a year should have two meals per day, and once they turn one year old, they will only need to be fed once, although two lighter meals would also work. Your dog would love other treats such as cheese, fruits and veggies or cooked eggs, but they should be given in moderation. Make sure that your dog always has fresh water available.They should also be brushed regularly and checked for fleas and ticks. They will need to be brushed more often during shedding seasons, but should only need to be bathed a few times per year. Like all dogs, they will also need to have their teeth brushed as often as possible to maintain dental health and need to have their ears cleaned as well in order to prevent infections.
