Crested Schnauzer Breed Maintenance
The maintenance for this dog will vary somewhat depending on which kind of coat they inherited. Crested Schnauzer dogs that are mostly hairless will require more frequent baths, though brushing takes just a very short amount of time, whereas the full coated variety typically requires fewer baths, with combing and brushing required several times a week in order to prevent tangles and mats from forming. The skin of the Chinese Crested dog is prone to irritation, particularly in the hairless variety, and the Crested Schnauzer may inherit this trait as well. This means that getting a good, non-irritating dog shampoo is essential for this canine’s health, as is checking for any problems like rashes, acne, or swelling whenever you bathe your pet. If the outer coat resembles that of the Schnauzer, regular clipping or hand stripping may also be required to keep this wiry fur clean and healthy.
