Broholmer Breed Maintenance
The Broholmer is a seasonal heavy shedder. He will shed is undercoat a few times a year and does require regular and thorough grooming during times of heavy shedding. Even though his coat is short, he has a dense undercoat. He is also a constant shedder, but generally it is not excessive except a few times each year. Brush him at least once a week, except times of heavy shedding when he needs to be brushed once a day. Use a natural bristle brush or a slicker brush to remove the loose hair and dead skin. He will generally only need to be bathed two to three times a year, when he is shedding heavily it is suggested to loosen the hair quicker. Bathe him using a mild shampoo so skin irritation does not occur. You should trim his nails often to keep him comfortable with having his feet touched and his nails trimmed. He will mature into a big dog and must be accepting of all grooming practices to make it easier on his owner.
