Bruno Jura Hound Breed Maintenance
The Bruno Jura Hound is a remarkably healthy dog that is energetic and robust by nature. Even their short but thick coat requires only minimal maintenance; a good session of brushing once a week will keep it healthy and in good condition.Bathing is on an 'as needed' basis, usually once a month unless the dog has been out hunting in muddy weather. When shampooing the Bruno Jura Hound, use a special dog shampoo that will not strip the natural oil from the coat, leaving it weather resistant. By using a product designed for dogs, you will protect the delicate balance in the animal's skin and prevent allergic reactions to the harsher human products. The Bruno Jura dog has very long, drooping ears, so this is one area that will need to be checked regularly for infection, as the ear provides a moist warm place for both parasites and infection to become established. Gently clean the ear out using a damp, soft cloth with a little ear cleaning fluid from your veterinarian, and dry gently. This area is very sensitive, so be gentle. Apart from that, a general check-over during grooming for cuts or abrasions that need attention, and a good brushing of the dog's teeth, your dog is ready for action!
