Kangal Breed Maintenance
The Kangal Dog has a short, dense coat that is generally an easy keeper. Kangal Dogs that are working in the field with the livestock do not need to be brushed out often, usually only a few times a year. However, Kangal Dogs that live in the home will need to be groomed more often to keep loose hair from accumulating on your floor and furniture. He has a dense coat that does shed throughout the year; the shedding intensifies during the spring and summer when his heavy winter coat comes out. During times of seasonal shedding, he should be brushed daily. He should be brushed using a slicker brush and metal comb, a deshedder can also be used to aid in quickly removing any loose undercoat. Check his nails weekly, they should only need to be trimmed every few weeks but weekly checks will make sure that his feet are healthy and no cuts or abrasions are present.
