Gran Mastin de Borinquen Breed Maintenance
The Gran Mastin de Borinquen is a relatively low maintenance breed. To keep their coat in top condition, they do need to be brushed at least once a week using a natural bristle brush, soft slicker brush or even a hound glove. Start brushing them at an early age so they become used to the handling. They do not have a strong doggy smell. This breed should not be bathed too often. Bathing often can cause skin issues because the harshness of the shampoos will strip the natural oils from their coat and skin. When it is necessary to give them a bath, use a gentle shampoo or one formulated for sensitive skin. Clean their ears weekly using alcohol wipes or cotton balls and hydrogen peroxide. Make sure the ears are dry after cleaning. Check their nails every few weeks and clip them as needed. Being a mastiff-type breed, the Gran Mastin de Borinquen will drool especially after eating or drinking. It is a good idea to keep a drool rag handy to wipe any excess drool.
