Jagdterrier Breed Maintenance
The Jagdterrier is generally a low maintenance dog. He does require weekly grooming using a comb and in some instances, a slicker brush to keep him looking well cared for. Since he is a terrier, he will require hand plucking when his coat begins to shed, generally once or twice a year. Many terrier owners will have their terriers professionally plucked when needed. Plucking him is a tedious job that can take a long time when properly done. The Jagdterrier is not a hypoallergenic dog and he has a mild smell. Bathing is only required when he gets into a dirty situation. When he comes in from hunting and has not gotten muddy, he can be wiped down with a damp cloth to remove any dirt or debris that has collected on his coat. His ears should be checked weekly and cleaned as needed. Cut his nails when needed, usually every few weeks. Set up a dental plan to ensure his teeth and gums stay healthy.
