Labrottie Breed Maintenance
What grooming will be required for your Labrottie will vary based on the coat that he inherits from his parent breeds. Labradors will typically shed heavily while Rottweilers shed very little, if at all. Dogs of the hybrid will have a short to medium length coat that will shed on occasion and can shed more seasonally. Depending on the dog’s coat, brushing every other day may be necessary or he might be fine with being brushed once a week. A firm bristled brush will help to remove loose hair as well as allow for the distribution of his skin oils. Bathing should take place once every month or two. Should the nails of your Labrottie not become worn naturally, they should be trimmed as needed. As with any dog, it is recommended that you brush his teeth several times a week to maintain his long term dental health.
