East European Shepherd Breed Maintenance
The East European Shepherd is a constant shedder so if you can't tolerate hair in the house, this may not be the dog for you. They have a dense thick coat with a soft undercoat that will require brushing at least twice a week to keep the coat in good condition. Bathing is not often required, as this can impair the natural oil protection within the coat that protects the dog from the cold. If you do bathe this dog, use a mild dog shampoo for the best results. As this dog can grow to a very large size, train them when they are a puppy to get them used to their teeth being brushed and nails clipped, as well as allowing you to wipe out their ears. It's easier to teach a puppy than to try and educate a 100 pound plus slightly wary dog! The East European Shepherd is a devoted family member and will be a happy canine if they can have regular exercise and if they have a job to do such as watching over the property.
