German Wirehaired Pointing Wolfhound Breed Maintenance
The German Wirehaired Pointing Wolfhound will shed all year but shedding can be controlled with weekly brushing. The coat of your German Wirehaired Pointing Wolfhound may be of a unique texture in that it is very thick and warm in the winter but shedding to a much thinner coat in the summer. A de-shedding tool will be helpful to remove loose fur. Neither the Irish Wolfhound or Pointer require regular bathing, some owners will choose to wash their hybrids a few times a year or when their dogs get really dirty. You will need to check and clean your hybrids ear’s every so often as they can be prone to ear infection. And as with all dogs, teeth need to be cleaned, ideally every week in order to prevent periodontal disease.
