Central Asian Shepherd Breed Maintenance
Minimal grooming is necessary to keep the coat of this dog looking attractive. The Central Asian Shepherd typically sheds quite heavily in the spring, at which time extra brushing is required in order to prevent matting and promote the shed. During the remainder of the year, this breed is considered to be a light shedder, and does not require frequent bathing or grooming. They are not hypoallergenic dogs, but typically have no doggie smell. The strong nails of the Central Asian Shepherd must be trimmed on a regular basis in order to avoid tearing or injury to the nail. This breed will not do well in an apartment, and if the living space is too small, the Central Asian Shepherd may resort to digging and chewing. It will adapt to living indoors, but it prefers to be outside patrolling and guarding the family home. As a puppy, the Central Asian Shepherd grows quite fast, and needs a lot of natural foods. Take care to feed your adult Central Asian Shepherd a large amount of high quality food twice a day.
