Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla Breed Maintenance
The Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla has a harsh wirehaired coat that is hard to the touch and loose fitting against his body. His coat has no gloss, it will have a dull appearance. During the winter, he will have an undercoat, that undercoat will shed out seasonally. He does have feathering on the back of his forelegs. He can be brushed with a firm bristle brush. His moustache and beard should be combed daily or at least every other day to keep it clean and free of dirt and debris. His eyebrows should be combed when he is brushed, which should be weekly. Bathe him with a mild soap or soap specifically for wirehair only when necessary. Giving him a bath too often can cause his skin to become dry and itchy. Since his ears hang down, clean them once a week and keep them dry to prevent infections from occurring. His nails should be trimmed as needed, usually every two weeks. Dental hygiene is also an important part of keeping your Hungarian Wirehaired Vizsla healthy. Brush his teeth often.
