Braque Francais Gascogne Breed Maintenance
The Braque Francais Gascogne is an easy dog to maintain. They love the attention that grooming brings, and will willingly stand and take whatever you want to do - whether that is brushing, bathing, cleaning their teeth or clipping their nails. These dogs just love interaction with people, and are so willing to please, that grooming will be a welcome task with them. Their short coat does shed, so a good brushing to remove the loose hair will help remove the hair from the coat. A good rub down will get rid of most dirt, so bathing often is not required. When you do bathe your dog, remember to use a special dog shampoo that is made especially for the dog's coat; use a veterinarian approved product that will protect the natural oils of the coat. Check in the ears to look for infection, the eyes to verify if there are injuries, and the coat to see if there are any cuts or abrasions to treat. Then check the toenails to ensure they are not too long (if they are, you will surely hear them 'clicking' around the home). Generally the Braque Francais Gascogne is a healthy dog that is considered low maintenance.
