Kromfohrlander Breed Maintenance
Since the Kromfohrlander comes in two coat varieties, his grooming needs vary depending on coat type. Smooth coated Kromfohrlanders are generally low maintenance and require weekly grooming. He has some feathering on his ears, legs, chest and tail that needs to be combed through weekly to prevent tangles. He should be brushed with a slicker brush to keep any shedding from gathering around the house. The wirehaired Kromfohrlander needs to be brushed weekly with special care being given to his beard. It is not uncommon for the Kromi to have a foul smell to his beard from the food and dirt that can gather. Regular bathing of only his beard may be necessary. He does not need full baths often, typically only two or three times a year or when he rolls in the mud. His teeth should be brushed frequently and his nails should be trimmed as needed. Be sure to check his ears often and keep them clean to prevent infection.
