Irish Wolf Schnauzer Breed Maintenance
The Irish Wolf Schnauzer is likely to need moderate maintenance but typically does not shed excessively. The Irish Wolfhound sheds more than the Giant Schnauzer who is hypoallergenic unlike the Irish Wolfhound so your pet could be either, depending on which parent breed is more dominant. Your pet should be brushed weekly and bathed only occasionally. The Irish Wolf Schnauzer may need trimming around the eyebrows, beard and on the body if he takes after his Schnauzer parent or if more like the Wolfhound he may need trimming on the mane and the body hair can be stripped by hand or with a stripping knife. Try to brush your dog’s teeth daily to prevent any dental issues and check ears for dirt. If necessary, wipe them gently with damp cotton wool. Nails also need to be checked to see if they need clipping.
