Cheagle Breed Maintenance
Most Cheagles require very little grooming to keep them clean and healthy. Baths should be given sparingly with these dogs as they are prone to developing dry, flaky, or irritated skin if bathed too frequently, but brushing should occur on a regular basis in order to remove shed hairs and to properly distribute their natural body oils. Two to four brushings a week are usually sufficient to keep either the short or long coat varieties healthy, clean, and lustrous, although the dogs with longer coats may require a little more detangling and a little more time. It is important to ensure that the ears are also kept clean and dry as hanging ears are more prone to infection.
