Chilean Fox Terrier Breed Maintenance
The Chilean Fox Terrier is very easy to maintain. Their coat is short and close fitting and usually white with patches of black and tan. They do have a grey undercoat which lets some dark spots show on the white over coat. Keeping their coat clean requires little maintenance; a rub down with a cloth will get rid of most dirt, and brushing once a week will keep the coat in good condition. Bathing is on an 'as needs' basis; in other words - when your dog has gone through deep mud or rolled in something unpleasant (and they will - given the opportunity). It is recommended to use special dog shampoos or soaps as this will protect the natural oils in the coat, keeping it healthy. Human products are too harsh on a dog's coat and skin. Other maintenance considerations are the teeth (clean them regularly and check for problems), ears (check for infection and wipe out gently occasionally), and trim their nails so that they won't be 'clicking' around the house as they walk. Apart from this regular practice, they are good to go and burn off some of that energy that the Chilean Fox Terrier has in abundance.
