Chidale Breed Maintenance
The Chidale will typically be a light shedding dog, though he will benefit from being brushed at least once a week. A pin brush will work best if his fur is long and if he has inherited a shorter, smooth coat the slicker brush is the appropriate choice. He only needs to be bathed as needed. Most of the time the ears are upright, but hybrids that inherit the floppy ears of the Airedale Terrier should have their ears cleaned weekly; this will prevent a buildup of debris that can result in an infection. Regular tooth brushing is important for you Chidale in order to ensure his long term dental health. Smaller dogs are known to have tartar accumulation early in life.
