Lurcher Breed Maintenance
The Lurcher is typically a fairly easy dog to maintain, although this can vary somewhat, depending on the breeds that were combined to develop your particular canine. In most cases, bathing will only be required a few times a year, and overly frequent bathing may even strip natural oils from the coat of this dog, particularly if they inherited a double-layer weather resistant coat from their non-sighthound parent. Those that are mixed with dogs like Bull Terriers will retain that short, single-layer coat which can typically be kept clean and healthy with weekly brushings with a rubber curry comb or a gentle wipe down with a moist towel. Many of the Shepherding dogs may contribute a double layer coat which can sometimes be thicker and require more grooming and dogs with wire-haired Terrier influence may have a coat that requires occasional stripping.
