German Spitz Breed Maintenance
The German Spitz has a double coat and will therefore, shed out that undercoat twice a year. Their undercoat is soft and wooly, their topcoat is long and somewhat harsh. The coat should be abundant around the chest and neck and the tail should be plumed. The hair on his face and head will be shorted and plush. He should be groomed several times a week to remove any dirt, debris or loose hairs. He does have fine hairs that shed and will stick to furniture and clothing. A shedding glove may come in handy to wipe him down once a day; a lint roller is a necessity for your furniture and clothing. A pin brush is ideal along with a sturdy steel comb when grooming. Pay close attention to tangles that can form where the legs meet the body and work those tangles loose with the comb. Nails should be trimmed every few weeks. His ears should be cleaned once a week and teeth need to be brushed often to prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
