Catalan Sheepdog Breed Maintenance
Despite having massive coats, Catalan Sheepdogs only need a moderate amount of grooming and should be brushed numerous times a week to prevent their hair from matting. While they are not heavy shedders by any means, they do still shed, mostly into their own coat, which is usually what causes matting in the first place. Trimming them down a bit or using a dematter may help this as well, and many prefer to take them to professional groomers regularly to help maintain their coats as much as possible. Brushing regularly will not only help keep their coats clean and tangle free, but help owners to identify any problem areas and give them an opportunity to check their dog for any extraneous lumps or other health issues, should they choose to take on the work alone. Their ears will also need frequent checking as the combination of being both hairy and folded increases the chance of excess moisture or wax buildup which can cause ear infections. Like any breed, their nails will need to be trimmed as needed and their teeth brushed on a weekly basis.
