Caucasian Shepherd (Mountain Dog) Breed Maintenance
Just like all double-coated breeds, the Caucasian Mountain Dog will need frequent brushing. This is because shedding will happen consistently throughout the year and a good brushing a few times a week will help to decrease the amount of shedding. Once a year when the Caucasian Mountain Dog blows his coat in a heavy shed, frequent baths and daily brushing will help to shed the old coat faster. Besides brushing, routine cleaning of the ears and clipping of the nails in necessary. Dogs that have loose ears like the Caucasian Mountain Dog are more susceptible to ear infections, so frequent ear checks and cleaning are a must. Keep your dog’s nails trimmed so that they do not scratch others if the dog jumps up. If you can hear clicking on the floor when the dog walks, the nails need to be trimmed.
