Black Norwegian Elkhound Breed Maintenance
The coat of the Black Norwegian Elkhound is both dense and abundant but is typically easy to care for. Their coats are resistant to both dirt and water and this dog also has a low odor profile so bathing is only required on an occasional basis. A good combing or brushing every two to four days should be sufficient to keep the coat clean and shining during most of the year, although daily brushing may be required when the dog sheds more heavily at the change of seasons. This dog is particularly prone to obesity, so it is important to monitor the amount and quality of the food they are being offered.
