Briquet Griffon Vendeen Breed Maintenance
Despite being independent-minded, Briquet Griffon Vendéens require a considerable amount of help in the maintenance department from their owners. Their outer coat is long and wiry and has a tendency to pick up dirt, mud, burrs, and other natural materials that may get caught during hunting or even just playing in the yard or park. While it is not suggested to actually trim their coats, they do need frequent brushing with a wire brush and a comb to keep them debris-free and safe from any troublesome tangling or matting. They are only light to moderate shedders and the regular maintenance brushing should help keep this to a minimum. They do not need regular bathing but owners should monitor their overall cleanliness and wash them when necessary with a dog-specific shampoo should they get into something or eventually accumulate an unpleasant smell brushing was unable to address. Their ears should also be checked regularly as their wiry, folded ears are prone to moisture buildup which can potentially cause ear infections. Owners should check their nails similarly often to make sure they are either wearing down naturally or need to be trimmed to prevent cracking or breaking. Their teeth should also be brushed on a weekly basis to help maintain good oral health.
