Dusky Breed Maintenance
A Dusky is likely to shed and will need moderate maintenance like the parent breeds. Wirehaired Dachshunds need more regular brushing to keep their coats free from mats and debris compared to the smooth-coated variety. They also need more baths. Siberian Huskies shed more and throughout the year but much like a cat, take time to clean themselves so don’t need many baths. A Dachshund's ears can be prone to infection, so check them often and clean out any dirt. Try to brush your pet’s teeth two to three times a week to prevent any dental problems forming. Check the nails regularly and get them clipped if they get too long.
