Cardigan Corswiss Breed Maintenance
Your Cardigan Corswiss hybrid can take on the characteristics of either or both of the parent breeds. This means that you’ll likely have a canine who is in a moderate category of shedding and grooming needs. He will likely need to be brushed at least once weekly to remove loose hair and debris. This may need to be increased during the natural seasonal shedding periods. He will need to bathed and shampooed only when necessary as frequent bathing will remove some of the oils in his coat that are intended to keep it weather resistant. As with many canine breeds and hybrids, dental care is important. Getting his teeth checked and cleaned regularly will help to reduce the opportunity for periodontal disease to develop and will reduce the resulting tooth loss. Eye examinations should be done regularly as there are several eye problems which are known to afflict either or both of the parent breeds. Regular ear checks, either by you or your vet, should be done to prevent ear infections from occurring. This is especially true if your hybrid pet has the ear set found in the Greater Swiss parent.
