Coton Schnauzer Breed Maintenance
A Coton Schnauzer is likely to be a hypoallergenic hybrid. Brushing daily will be a must in order to avoid matting of the fur. Not much shedding occurs with the Coton Schnauzer, but a trim with the scissors may be needed to keep the coat looking sharp, especially if the Schnauzer's signature beard is inherited. Some owners like to get a groomer to do a trim now and then and at the same time, have them clip the nails. If you are looking after this part of the regimen on your own, trim the nails around twice a month. Teeth should be brushed daily - if the teeth are small and crowded, decay can occur after plaque accumulation. The ears should be looked at weekly too, dirt and moisture can lead to redness or infection.
