Deutscher Wachtelhund Breed Maintenance
The Deutscher Wachtelhund does require frequent grooming to keep his coat in good condition. He should be groomed at least once a week using a pin brush and a metal comb. Any tangles and mats should be worked through using the metal comb. A detangler spray can also be used to help work through any tangles or mats. The hair between his toes should be trimmed often to keep dirt and debris from getting trapped and causing him irritation. He is a moderate shedder and will shed seasonally. During times of heavier shedding, he should be groomed two to three times a week. Since he has ears that hang, his ears should be checked once a week and cleaned as needed. Dirt and moisture can easily become trapped, causing infection. His nails will need to be trimmed as needed, usually every two to three weeks. A routine dental plan needs to be put in place to ensure he has healthy teeth and gums.
