Kuchi Breed Maintenance
The Kuchi is a self-sufficient breed and however, during seasons of heavy shedding they do require much more grooming and maintenance. All three varieties have a dense undercoat that does completely shed out during the spring. This requires daily brushing to stay on top of hairs floating all over your home and getting onto your clothing. Otherwise they can be brushed once a week using a pin brush, metal comb and if necessary a de-matter and de-shedder. Their ears are generally cropped close to their heads but they do still need to be cleaned often to prevent any ear infections from occurring. Since they are heavy seasonal shedders, this breed is not hypoallergenic. Being a molosser-type breed, the Kuchi does drool and snore. They can have a strong smell when they have been out working but they should not be bathed too often. Bathe them every few months using a mild shampoo.
