Great Keeshees Breed Maintenance
Although the long, thick coat of the Great Keeshees looks like it would take a great deal of work, it is actually fairly simple to care for. Both dogs have coats that are somewhat dirt and water resistant and neither should be bathed too often as it can result in a depletion of the body oils needed to maintain the suppleness and shine of both the skin and the coat. Although daily brushing may result in the ends of the hair breaking off, it is needed at least three or four times a week to prevent tangling and matting. It is particularly important to ensure you are getting the entire depth of the undercoat brushed, as severe mats in this area can cause damage to the underlying skin.
