Cotonese Breed Maintenance
Because both parent breeds of the Cotonese require quite a bit of maintenance in order to keep their coat in check, you can expect that the Cotonese is going to need a bit of upkeep. Thankfully, this breed does not shed often and is hypoallergenic; so he is a perfect fit for anyone who doesn’t want to deal with a lot of loose hair! Brush your dog at least three times a week with a metal comb to remove any knots that may be forming in the hair and any dirt that may be trapped in the coat. This frequent brushing will keep your Cotonese’s fur looking great. As this is a white-haired dog, bathing is going to need to be frequent if you want to keep that gorgeous white color clean. You may want to take the Cotonese to a professional groomer for this if you have the money, as a good grooming job every few weeks will do wonders for keeping their dense, curly coat in great shape. Besides brushing and bathing, be sure to clean your dog’s ears often and always dry them thoroughly, as trapped moisture within the ear can lead to ear infections. Trim the nails of your dog’s paws every few weeks or whenever you hear the nails clicking against the floor. This will help to ensure that the feet stay healthy and free of any tears that might snag and cause injury.
