Canadian Eskimo Breed Maintenance
Canadian Eskimo Dogs will usually be fine with regular brushing, although you may want to increase the frequency as the weather warms up and they begin shedding. Brushing is always necessary in order to remove mats and tangles. These dogs will also need to have their teeth brushed every day, or at least two or three times per week. This will ensure that their teeth and gums stay in good health and also that their breath remains nice and fresh. They will also need to have their nails clipped most likely once or twice per month, although the exact frequency depends on how active the dog is. If you can hear your dog clicking on the floor when they walk, it is an indication that their nails are overdue to be trimmed. All dogs will also need to have their ears gently wiped clean every week. This will help to prevent ear infections or to catch them early if they are developing.
