Border Newfie Breed Maintenance
As both parent breeds of the Border Newfie have thick, dense coats, daily or at the minimum, a few times weekly brushing will be needed in order to keep the fur free of tangles and debris that may be picked up when outside on the run or at play. Loose fur will be more easily removed with a consistent grooming routine. The ears should be checked at the same time, particularly if your dog likes to swim. Yeast, bacteria and dirt may build up in the ear canal and outer extremities of the ear, allowing germs to proliferate. Additionally, the nails and the teeth should be maintained, in order to give your pet the chance for optimum health.
