Croatian Sheepsky Breed Maintenance
Although both of the parent dogs have a double layer coat that is made up of a thick, dense undercoat protected by a coat of more waterproof guard hairs, the texture of the undercoat is quite different. Although they both have medium length fur, the Siberian Husky’s outer layer will be stiff and straight whereas the Croatian Sheepdog has soft wavy or curly fur. This means that if your dog takes after their Croatian Sheepdog parent in coat types, they will require only occasional bathing and regular brushing with a pin or slicker brush. If your dog inherited a coat more reminiscent of the Husky line, bathing needs might still be infrequent, but brushing will be a daily requirement. Dogs with a more Husky type coat will also shed more and may have periods of significant shedding during the spring and fall.
