Gordon Sheltie Breed Maintenance
The Gordon Setter is a seasonal shedder and his long coat can easily trap a lot of foreign matter. It is highly recommended that owners brush their hybrid weekly, or even daily, with a pin brush in order to remove dirt, leaves, twigs and loose fur. An active dog such as this will collect all kinds of debris as they run, hunt and play. Not only will the fur tangle, but the ears may accumulate dirt and moisture, so be certain to check and clean them often using a veterinarian approved product. Do not neglect the teeth; in order to keep them white and decay free, brush them at least three times a week. Trim the nails as needed and take a look at them often to make sure there are no tears or breaks.
