Boxer Shepherd Breed Maintenance
Maintenance of your Boxer Shepherd will be moderate, dependent upon the coat that is inherited. The coat of the Boxer Shepherd is short, though thick, and may be smooth or rough but either way, weekly to semi-weekly brushing with a firm bristle brush will remove any loose hair or dirt. It is recommended you only bathe your Boxer Shepherd when absolutely necessary as it will remove the natural oils that are found in his skin. The German Shepherd parent can be prone to skin issues so care must be taken. If your Boxer Shepherd has any wrinkles or folds at all, be sure to dry them thoroughly after cleaning. The teeth and the toenails of your canine are an important part of the grooming routine; teeth need to be brushed at least twice a week. To avoid cracks or breaks in the toenails, trim them every two or three weeks.
