Entlebucher Mountain Dog Breed Maintenance
Even though the Entlebucher Mountain Dog’s coat is short, it has a tendency to shed all year and it can be quite heavy in the spring. Your dog should be brushed at least once a week with a rubber curry grooming brush to decrease the shedding and remove the dead hair. They do not need to be bathed unless they are really dirty and should then be bathed with mild dog shampoo. You need to trim the nails once a month and brush the teeth daily, if possible, to keep the teeth clean and promote good dental health. Frequent brushing can also prevent bad breath. Look at your dog’s ears during your weekly brushing to check for wax, dirt, and other debris. If they are dirty, you can use a cotton ball with special ear cleaner for dogs as recommended by your veterinary care provider. In addition, you should check your dog’s eyes for discharge or cloudiness at this time.
