Mountain Cur Breed Maintenance
The Mountain Cur is relatively easy to groom, except when he sheds seasonally usually once or twice a year. Brush him using a natural bristle brush, soft slicker brush or a hound mitt to remove loose or dead hair. Weekly brushing will keep his coat and skin healthy and shiny. He can experience dry skin or dandruff if he is bathed excessively. Only bathe him a few times a year using a mild shampoo and rinsing him well with clean, warm water. The Mountain Cur is not a hypoallergenic dog. He also does not drool much because he has tighter fitting lips and not the typical hound jowls. Since he has ears that hang, be sure to check them weekly and clean as needed to prevent a foul odor or infection from occurring. If he is very active and running over rough terrain, he should naturally wear his toenails down, however, you should check his nails every few weeks to ensure all nails are properly worn, even the dewclaws.
