Doxie-Pit Breed Maintenance
Despite the Doxie-Pit’s short, hard coat, this hybrid is known to moderately shed. Brushing the Doxie-Pit once a week will significantly help remove dead and loose hair from the coat and keep the coat looking and smelling its best. All dogs need their teeth brushed to keep the tartar from building up, and the Doxie-Pit should have his teeth brushed at least twice a week. Proper dental hygiene will also help prevent tooth and gum decay and bacterial infections. While brushing your Doxie-Pit’s coat and teeth, also check his ears and use a veterinarian approved solution to gently remove any dirt, wax, or debris from your dog’s ears. Only bathe your Doxie-Pit when necessary, and most times, a room temperature cloth applied after brushing will help keep your Doxie-Pit clean. The American Pitbull Terrier’s skin is very sensitive, so keeping a healthy, clean cost is important.
