French Mastahoula Breed Maintenance
The French Mastahoula has a short, single coat, requiring combing and brushing once a week to remove loose hair and to keep the coat clean and shiny. Bathing can be done every few months with a gentle canine shampoo. Folds and wrinkles on his face should be cleaned daily and kept dry. If your French Mastahoula has drop ears, he may need weekly ear cleaning. To prevent tartar, his teeth should be brushed with a dog-safe toothpaste twice a week. Nails should be trimmed monthly and more if your find your active French Mastahoula tends to break or tear them. Your hybrid should be provided with strong chew and interactive toys to keep his mind busy and stimulated. Because the Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog can be a wanderer, it may be a good idea to have him micro-chipped. That way, if he gets lost he can be scanned by a shelter or veterinarian’s office and traced back to you.
