Brazilian Terrier Breed Maintenance
The Brazilian Terrier is a pleasure to groom, as they have short hair that only requires a good brushing once a week. When it comes to bathing this dog, it will depend on what the little rascal has gotten into as to how many times a week they would need it. These Terriers are inquisitive little souls, and you may find that they have discovered some disgusting smells to roll in (which is all part of being a dog), so some may need frequent bathing while others only need a bath once a month. Whenever you do bathe a dog, remember to use special dog shampoo, as human shampoos are too harsh for an animal's skin and fur. You want to clean your dog's coat, but not strip it of natural oil. Whenever you are bathing or brushing your dog, take advantage of this moment to check your dog's ears and eyes for any signs of ill health or infection. Also, check under the legs as parasites often hide in the less hairy areas of a dog. If you have trained your dog since puppyhood to have their teeth cleaned, you should have no trouble continuing with this practice, as dog's teeth do need constant care to keep them in good health.
