Coton Eskimo Breed Maintenance
There is a chance your Coton Eskimo may be hypoallergenic as the Coton de Tulear is. However the American Eskimo is not, so it depends on who your pet most takes after whether they will be or not. Hypoallergenic dogs are good for people who suffer from allergies. When it comes to grooming, the Coton Eskimo is regarded as low maintenance. They shed moderately so will need to be brushed a few times a week to get rid of loose hair and any mats. The Coton de Tulear needs to be bathed nearly every week while the American Eskimo only needs bathing a few times a year. The breed, also known as Eskies, have sensitive skin so washing them too often can strip the natural oils from the body and irritation. You will have to monitor the condition of your Coton Eskimo's skin for redness; consult the veterinarian for advice on frequency of bathing.
