Burgos Pointing Breed Maintenance
The Burgos Pointing dog is a large dog that has an elegant appearance with long legs, well defined head and a lovely calm nature. Grooming is quite easy with this athletic dog, as they only require a good brushing each week or a wipe down with a damp chamois cloth that will keep their short coat gleaming. Frequent bathing is to be avoided, as it can strip the natural oils out of the coat that provide the weather proofing that the dog needs. If you do give this dog a bath, make sure you use a very mild dog shampoo and rinse your dog thoroughly afterwards. Their long heavy ears need to be checked on a regular basis to make sure they don't get infected. Check also for any parasites that may be hitching a ride. This is an active dog, and they shouldn't need their toenails clipped, but check anyway. Usually, this dog wears them down naturally. But do check their paws for any injury the may have picked up over rough ground. Exercise and training are vital for this dog. They are at their best when busy, and if you are not a hunter, they will need a good long walk and freedom to explore each day. This solid dog is normally healthy and robust, which makes maintenance a breeze.
