Foxy Rat Terrier Breed Maintenance
The Foxy Rat Terrier is not considered a hypoallergenic breed and will shed moderately throughout the year. Brushing him weekly with a slicker brush should suffice and the occasional comb through will help to remove loose fur at times of shed. Not known to have an odor, he will need bathing only when he decides to do some extra digging in the dirt. Being a smaller dog, he may be prone to dental decay so should have his teeth brushed a few times a week with a veterinarian approved toothpaste designed for canines. He will need his nails clipped about twice a month. If you start the grooming regimen with your Foxy Rat Terrier at a young age, he'll be more than happy to sit still for this short time and will come to love the one on one.
