Greater Swiss Mountain Dane Breed Maintenance
There is not much Information about the maintenance of your Greater Swiss Mountain Dane, though you can consider the maintenance requirements of his parent breeds to get an idea of what to expect. The Greater Swiss Mountain Dog will shed minimally most of the year. Twice each year he will shed his entire undercoat. On the other hand, the Great Dane will shed a lot, though regular grooming will keep this under control. Frequent brushing will also decrease the need for giving your Great Dane a bath. Based on this, the Greater Swiss Mountain Dane should be brushed weekly with a pin brush if his coat is on the long side, while a slicker brush suits the shorter coat. If he is shedding a lot, try the deshedding tool to remove loose fur. Regular ear cleaning with a cotton ball and ear cleaning solution is recommended for the Greater Swiss Mountain Dane, especially if his ears fold over. Trim his nails often to make the procedure easier as they will be thick and strong. Brush his teeth twice a week.
