King Wheaten Breed Maintenance
The King Wheaten has an abundance of hair and requires brushing up to four times a week. Brushing will help remove any loose or dead hair from the coat. The King Wheaten does not shed much and may lean toward being a hypoallergenic dog. Pin brushes and combs are effective on the soft waves and you should pay particular attention to the ears and legs, where the hair grows longer. Brushing the coat will help remove dirt and will keep the King Wheaten looking its best. This hybrid is prone to allergic dermatitis, so only bathe the King Wheaten when necessary and always use a hypoallergenic dog shampoo. Both parent breeds may suffer from poor dentition, which may lead to tooth disease. It is recommended to brush the King Wheaten's teeth at least three times a week. Typically, the King Wheaten does not drool or have a doggy odor but keeping its coat, ears, and mouth clean will prevent odor.
