German Malinois Breed Maintenance
Grooming requirements for the German Malinois are fairly simple but may be somewhat time-consuming as well. Excessive bathing will make this canine’s skin flaky, dry, and irritated, so baths should be kept down to just a few a year, but a thorough brushing should occur several times a week during normal shedding and daily when the dog “blows its coat” during the change of seasons. It will generally take some effort to ensure that this canine’s coat remains shiny and healthy no matter what the season, but it is definitely worth the effort to remove the dead hair and to prevent tangles and matting. It is also important to ensure that this crossbreed has its ears checked on a regular basis as they are known to develop wax in their ears if they are not attended to.
Insuring your German Malinois puppy as soon as “pawssible” is essential for preventing high vet care costs. Start comparing insurance plans from leading insurers like Healthy Paws and Embrace and save over $270 a year.
