Dorkie Breed Maintenance
The Dorkie coat does not need too much maintenance but it is recommended that you brush them with a metal comb and stiff bristle brush three or four times a week. If they get any tangles or mats, use your fingers to loosen them before brushing them out. You should also clean their teeth with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste made specially for dogs. You can do this a few times a week but it is recommended that you do it every day. Trim their nails when needed and clean their ears once a week. Watch for redness as bacteria and yeast can grow in a moist environment like the canine ear.
Insuring your dog as soon as “pawssible” is essential for preventing high vet care costs. Start comparing insurance plans from leading insurers like Healthy Paws and Embrace and save over $270 a year.
