Deutsche Bracke Breed Maintenance
The short coat of the Deutsche Bracke dog doesn't require much in the way of maintenance. Their short, dense fur is easy to maintain with a good brushing routine once or twice a week, just to remove any loose hair. They respond well to a rub down with a soft damp cloth, as this is all that is needed to keep them looking great unless they have been out in wet, muddy fields. This dog will enjoy the attention of a good soap up (using mild dog products to avoid drying their skin out) and a good body massage. The Deutsche Bracke are dedicated to their owner and family, and they will bask in any attention you give them - even if it is a bath! With such long drooping ears, they will need these to be checked and cleaned regularly to prevent infections. While your dog is young, teach them to enjoy having their teeth brushed; this will avoid teaching a mature dog a new trick that they may not like so much. Get them while they are young and they will think teeth brushing, ear cleaning, and toenail clipping is just the norm.
