Dobie-Basset Breed Maintenance
This breed will need a moderate amount of grooming. To keep their coat in absolute tip top shape, brush them quickly every day. Overall, the maintenance needs for this breed are not too demanding as both parent breeds are easy to care for. Dogs from all breeds should have their teeth brushed every day. If you are unable to do so daily, brush your dog’s teeth two or three times per week minimum. This will keep the teeth and gums healthy. Your pet should also have their ears wiped out weekly; those with long and floppy ears are more prone to infections. Lastly, your Dobie-Basset will need their nails trimmed. How frequent they will need to be done can vary depending on how active the individual dog is, since some lifestyles will wear down the nails naturally. However, the owner should check the length of the nails once or twice per month. A dog who is making clicking noises on the floor while walking is definitely overdue for a trim.
