BT Walker Breed Maintenance
The BT Walker is categorized as a moderate maintenance breed due to the fact that they do not require special tools for grooming, however, they do shed often. Their short fur is easy to take care of and only needs to be brushed a couple times a week in order to keep the shedding at a manageable amount. Bathing is only required every few months or so, as the BT Walker does not have a bad doggie smell. Keep in mind, however, that if your dog gets especially dirty you will want to give him a good bath! It is very important to thoroughly dry your dog’s ears after bathing or swimming and perform regular ear cleanings. This is because the BT Walker has folded ears that can become infected and irritated if there is any leftover moisture trapped inside. Thorough drying will help to prevent ear infections from occurring often. Other than that, trim your dog’s nails every few weeks or so to keep the feet nice and healthy.
