Corgi Basset Breed Maintenance
The Corgi Basset is not a hypoallergenic breed and sheds moderately. Weekly brushing is recommended to avoid dead hair buildup. A rubber curry brush or a sturdy but gentle-on-the-skin slicker brush would be optimal choices for brushing the short coat. The Corgi Basset is not known to drool or have odor and bathing should be limited to every 6 to 8 weeks, if necessary. Bathing your dog too often can lead to overproduction of oils on his skin. Special attention should be given to his eyes. If you are unsure as to what shampoo to use, hypoallergenic veterinary approved brands are the safest. Ears should be wiped and cleaned weekly to prevent debris buildup. Nails should be trimmed every 2 to 3 weeks. It is best to get your dog used to the grooming process when he is a puppy so he understands what to expect. Many canines learn to love this bonding time.
