Confetti Australian Shepherd Breed Maintenance
Miniature Schnauzers will need to be groomed well every five to eight weeks in order to keep their coats in tip top shape. This process can be difficult, which is why most owners choose to get help from a professional. On top of that, these dogs, who do not shed but will need the fur to be brushed out, should be brushed two or three times each week and extra care should be given to the beard, like washing it after they eat. Australian Shepherds, who shed all year round, should be brushed every week, or more often during the heavy shedding seasons. The grooming needs of your hybrid will be determined according to the dominant parent. The Confetti Australian Shepherd will not need regular baths, only if they are dirty or smell bad. All dogs need to have their teeth brushed every day, or two to three times per week as a minimum. Clean out your pet’s ears weekly to prevent infections, and trim the nails as needed. This can be once or twice per month, but can vary if your dog is active and wears down the nails naturally.
