Murray River Curly Coated Retriever Breed Maintenance
This dog should not be bathed too frequently as doing so can strip the single-layer coat of natural oils that are needed to keep it strong and healthy. This is particularly important for dogs that spend time in the water as these oils are what helps the coat to be water resistant and dogs with single-layer coats may not have as much protection from the cold as dogs with double-layer coats, especially when they are wet. A good brushing session once or twice a week helps to control their moderate, year-round shedding and their ears should be checked for moisture, debris, and infection on a regular basis. Keeping the teeth clean and the nails trimmed to a comfortable length round out the grooming routine.
