Chart Polski Breed Maintenance
The Chart Polski is generally an easy keeper when he is brushed regularly. Generally, he will need to be brushed weekly to keep any loose or dead hairs from floating through the air and attaching to your furniture or clothing. Use a soft slicker brush and a hound mitt when grooming. Check his ears weekly and clean them as needed. Since he is a short coated hound, he does not have a strong hound smell. He is not hypoallergenic although his dander is not as intense as other breeds. The Chart Polski does not need bathed often, usually every 3 months. Do not use a harsh shampoo and be sure to rinse him thoroughly. Ask your veterinarian to suggest a mild shampoo that is formulated for short coated breeds. When you are grooming your Chart Polski be sure to check his nails and trim them as needed. Do not let his nails grow too long and cause him pain. Since he is a sight hound, he will be touchy about having his nails trimmed.
