Elk-Kee Breed Maintenance
An Elk-Kee will need regular grooming to keep looking good which will include brushing around three times a week. Both parent breeds shed quite frequently so the Elk-Kee is also likely to. The coats of both parent breeds tend to be naturally clean and they don’t have a doggy smell so don’t have to be bathed often. Neither of the parent breeds is hypoallergenic so a Elk-Kee is also unlikely to be. Try to brush your pet’s teeth two to three times a week to prevent any dental problems forming. Check the ears regularly and wipe them clean with damp cotton wool. Check the nails regularly and get them clipped if they get too long.
