Hellenic Hound Breed Maintenance
The Hellenic Hound has a smooth, short coat that is dense; therefore, it will need to be brushed weekly. When grooming, use a firm bristle brush, a slicker brush and a metal comb. A hound mitt may also be used when they are shedding. The Hellenic Hound will shed seasonally and during this time you will want to brush him more often to keep any loose hairs from gathering around the home. If he is being used for hunting, after each hunt check him over for any injuries that he might have gotten while in the underbrush. Typically, the Hellenic Hound does not require a lot of baths, when he does have a bath use a mild shampoo. He does not have a strong smell and between bathing a dry shampoo can be used if you do notice a smell. He is prone to ear infections. Wash his ears weekly and keep them dry to prevent any infections from setting in.
