Munsterlander Breed Maintenance
The Munsterlander does require a lot of attention when it comes to grooming. Even though his coat is ideal for hunting over different terrains, the length and feathering can cause tangles to quickly occur. He will need weekly grooming using a natural bristle brush and steel comb. You can use a de-tangler on his coat as well as a leave-in conditioner to help keep tangles to a minimum. When he has been out hunting it is a good idea to quickly brush him afterward so any new tangles can quickly be brushed out. He is a seasonal shedder and will shed his undercoat in the spring. Intact females will shed after each heat cycle. Regular brushing will keep the dead and loose hairs from gathering on furniture and clothing. The Munsterlander can be bathed about once a month if he develops an odor. Over-bathing is not recommended as it can cause skin irritation.
