Eskenji Breed Maintenance
The maintenance routine will depend on the coat that your Eskenji inherits. If his appearance is like that of the Basenji parent, his coat will be sleek and smooth, requiring little brushing. The Basenji fur is fine and does not shed extensively. The American Eskimo coat however, is prone to mats and tangles. Daily to weekly brushing is best. Not known to be a dog who likes the dirt, bathing should not be required often. The Basenji parent is quite a groomer in fact, and is often described as cat-like in how much he cleans himself. Because the ears of your hybrid will be upright, they should stay clean but check them now and then just in case. Brush the teeth daily and trim the nails every few weeks.
