Doxiemo Breed Maintenance
Having risen from two non-hypoallergenic breeds, the Doxiemo is not hypoallergenic and is considered an average to high shedder. The medium to long, soft hair of the Doxiemo should be brushed daily to prevent mats and keep the coat free of dirt. Frequent brushing will also help evenly distribute natural oils that keep the skin and coat healthy. These dogs are not known to develop the odor typical of many dogs, but regular brushing will help prevent smells from developing. While brushing your Doxiemo’s coat, also check the ears and remove any built-up wax, dirt, or debris using a veterinarian approved cleaning solution. The Doxiemo’s ears are on the larger side, and the long hair means additional dirt and debris may get caught inside.
