Bouvador Breed Maintenance
The Bouvador may have a dense medium to long double-coat, which will need to be brushed regularly. The Bouvier des Flandres coat tends to mat therefore, this may occur in the Bouvador. A very important part of the maintenance routine of the Bouvador will be checking the ears for excessive moisture and dirt. As your hybrid will love the water and will be active when outside, the combination of moisture and dirt can lead to smelly dirty ears, the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and infection. The Bouvier parent can have sensitive skin so be certain to check for redness as you brush and clean your pet. This active hybrid may wear his nails down naturally but if not, trim them every two weeks. Don't forget care of the teeth; brushing every two or three days is the best way to avoid a need for dental work.
