Dobie Schnauzer Breed Maintenance
The Doberman Pinscher is a low maintenance breed that needs to be brushed once every week. These dogs do shed all year, even though they have such short coats. They are clean pets that will not need to be bathed regularly. The Schnauzer should be professionally groomed every five to eight weeks, and hand stripped if they are show dogs. They should also be brushed two or three times each week, and they will need to have their beards wiped clean after eating. The grooming requirements of your hybrid will depend on which parental traits are dominant in the coat. All dogs should have their teeth brushed two or three times per week minimum, or every day if possible. Wipe their ears clean every week in order to prevent infections. Lastly, dogs should have their nails clipped around one or two times each month, or less if they are worn down naturally. If you can hear your dog’s nails clicking against the floor, they are overdue. Keep up with these requirements in order to maintain your Dobie-Schnauzer’s health and cleanliness.
