Jacairn Breed Maintenance
The Jacairn will have medium length hair, and it may be wavy. Depending on the Jack Russell parent breed, it may be somewhat coarse. It may also be long and straight. Brush your Jacairn at least once a week with a soft bristle brush. Bathe only when necessary. You should brush your Jacairn’s teeth at least three times a week; however, if you want to prevent gum disease, brush the dog’s teeth daily. Trim your dog’s nails every other week. The rule of thumb is if you can hear your dog’s nails clicking on the floor, it is time to cut them. Because he ears can trap moisture, be sure to check for yeast or bacterial buildup. Your veterinarian can advise on a suitable wash for the ears and show you best how to use the product.
