German Wirehaired Lab Breed Maintenance
Labradors tend to be heavy, seasonal shedders so this may be a trait inherited by your hybrid. German Wirehaired Pointers tend to shed year-round as well but not as much as the Lab. For the most part, your German Wirehaired Lab is a low maintenance dog; he will need to be brushed weekly at least twice in order to remove dirt and loose hairs. They have water and weather resistant coats, and won’t need regular bathing unless he runs through the mud or rolls in something unpleasant as most dogs love to do. If kept active, most dogs will wear down their nails. Check them a few times a month for length and condition. Brush his teeth three times a week to avoid tartar buildup and to keep his gums healthy.
