Bracco Italiano Breed Maintenance
The Bracco Italiano does require weekly grooming to remove any dead hairs and dirt. He does shed moderately because his hair is so dense. But since his hair is short, the coat that is being shed tends to float through the air and gather or furniture and clothing when he is not kept groomed. Use a stiff, natural bristle brush that will help remove the dirt and hair. To keep his coat looking shiny, a leave-in conditioner can be applied or a finishing spray that is approved for dogs. He does have strong nails that grow quickly and he will need regular nail trimming. Check his nails every week or every other week and clip them as needed. A nail grinder can be used to avoid splitting or cracking of the nails during clipping. His ears need to be checked weekly and cleaned as needed. A routine dental plan needs to be established to keep his teeth and gums healthy and strong.
