King Pin Breed Maintenance
While the King Pin is a dog that tends to shed every once in a while, thanks to his Miniature Pinscher side, it is very infrequent. This, and his short fur, makes the King Pin a very easy dog to maintain. A thorough grooming only needs to happen perhaps a couple times a month and bathing is even more rare. If your dog tends to get especially dirty, you can brush him off with a slicker brush and give him a bath with a gentle shampoo. Be sure that any time after bathing or swimming, you thoroughly dry the King Pin's ears. This is because due to the folded over nature of this breed's ears, any extra moisture that is left inside them won't have a chance to dry out; thus leading to potential infection and irritation. By drying and cleaning your dog's ears thoroughly, you can decrease the chance of these issues occurring. Besides brushing and bathing, either you or a groomer should trim your dog's nails to keep the paws healthy and snag free.
