Frenchnese Breed Maintenance
Depending on the coat your Frenchnese dog inherits from its parents, your hybrid may require a bit more maintenance than most other breeds, especially if it has the long silky coat. If this is the case, your dog will require frequent brushing and bathing to keep the coat from matting. Use specially prepared dog products when bathing your Frenchnese dog to prevent skin allergies. Thankfully the longer coat has a low level of shedding. Some owners get their dogs clipped but keep in mind the long silky coat acts as a protective barrier to heat and cold and can influence the way they react to climate. Your Frenchnese dog will enjoy being the centre of your attention, and will sit patiently while you comb, bush and wash them into shape. During this process, take the time to check in the ears for signs of inflammation, and keep them clean by gently wiping out with a damp soft cloth. Brush your dog’s teeth two to three times per week for optimal health, and perform a full examination of your dog once a week to check for sores, rashes or inflammation. Catching health problems early enables a quick treatment and healing.
