Braque du Puy Breed Maintenance
The Braque du Puy is very low maintenance, with a coat that is short and close to the body. A quick brush and rub down is all that is required in the way of coat maintenance, which appeals to many owners. They are known to have foot issues, with infection of the toenails being a common complaint. Best practice is to carry out a regular foot inspection and treat any infection immediately. Cleaning the feet after they have been out in the country or on a walk or hunt will help to avoid this health issue. It is also advisable to check their ears as floppy ears provide an excellent habitat for parasites or infection to take hold. Be gentle when checking the ear, and if cleaning, use a soft damp cloth with a special solution; you can get this from your pet health care expert to gently clean the area. Dry afterwards with a soft cloth. Dogs have the same issues that we do with teeth, so training your dog from an early age to accept teeth cleaning each week is a great help towards maintaining oral hygiene.
