Boxmatian Breed Maintenance
The Boxmatian is not a hypoallergenic breed and sheds moderately. In order to cut down on shedding, daily brushing should be completed with a rubber curry brush or a slicker brush, taking care to not brush too hard. Drooling is kept to a minimum and there is no significant odor in this breed. Your dog should be bathed every 6 to 8 weeks if necessary. Shampoo and conditioner options will vary depending on your specific dog's needs. If your dog has skin allergies, hypoallergenic shampoo might be best to use. Ears should be wiped and cleaned weekly. Teeth should be brushed weekly. Nails should be trimmed or filed every 2 to 3 weeks to prevent them from overgrowing and also to avoid tears and cracks, common in active dogs.
