Maremma Sheepdog Breed Maintenance
Because of their long double coats, Maremma Sheepdogs take quite a bit of maintenance. They are active shedders, especially in specific seasons, and require frequent brushing/deshedding to keep their coats clean and healthy. While many spend most of their lives outdoors, any that are to be brought into a home should be given regular maintenance to keep the dog at a more comfortable temperature and the home less hairy (although this can rarely be avoided entirely given their heavy-shedding nature). A thorough brushing every few days and the occasional touch up with de-shedding and de-matting brushes when necessary should help to keep their coats in good shape. As they were often left on their own to guard a flock, their coats generally need no trimming, as they maintain a proper length on their own and bathing should only be on an as-needed basis. They are not active droolers but like any dog, should have their teeth brushed on a regular basis to maintain oral health, especially considering their high intake of food. And like any other, their nails should be monitored and clipped to prevent cracking and breaking.
