Boxer Basset Breed Maintenance
The short, hard coat of the Boxer Basset makes them easy to groom. In fact, all they really need is a gentle brushing with a soft bristle brush once or twice a week. This will keep shedding to a minimum and helps the circulation. Only bathe when necessary because it washes away the oils in the skin which they need. Brushing their teeth at least once or twice a week will keep dental problems away and you can trim their nails when needed. Because they have such long and floppy ears, you must check them often for dirt, debris, wax, and mites. Keep them clean by wiping them with a soft cloth or cotton ball. Never use cotton swabs in your dog’s ears. This can cause serious damage.
