Griffon Bleu de Gascogne Breed Maintenance
The Griffon Bleu de Gascogne has a high energy level and is known to get into sticky or dirty situations. They do require brushing a few times each week using a pin brush or natural bristle brush. A metal comb should be used to comb through their beard and eyebrows to remove any tangles or dirt. They are average shedders and will shed heavily seasonally. The Griffon Bleu de Gascogne is not a hypoallergenic breed. They should not be bathed often, usually once every few months is sufficient unless they roll in something unsavory. When bathing, use a shampoo that is mild and suited for a harsher coat. Ear infections can be common in the Griffon Bleu de Gascogne. Their ears should be cleaned once a week and kept dry. Check their nails and clip as needed. Trim the hair between the pads of their feet every few weeks to prevent debris from collecting and causing irritation or lameness.
