Jindo Breed Maintenance
The Jindo is a seasonal shedder and will shed very heavily twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. During heavy shedding, the Jindo needs to be groomed every day and given weekly warm baths to help the hair come out quicker. Use a comb, pin brush and deshedder when grooming during times of heavy shedding. When he is not shedding heavily, there will still be mild shedding but by brushing him weekly using a comb and pin brush the shedding will be kept to a minimum and will stay off of furniture and rugs. He is not hypoallergenic. You will notice, between baths, that he does have a moderate doggy smell. His coat can be sprinkled with baking soda and baby powder to freshen between baths. Cut his toenails as needed and clean his ears often to keep infections from occurring. Start a routine dental plan to ensure his gums and teeth remain healthy and strong.
