New Guinea Singing Dog Breed Maintenance
The grooming for this breed is not particularly difficult. Bathing should only occur on an occasional basis as bathing that is too frequent can strip the coat of protective oils that are naturally present in the coat. Their double-layer coat should be brushed several times a week; this will help to remove dirt and debris, and control shedding as well as prevent tangles and mats from forming, which is particularly important in regards to the thick undercoat, where particularly bad mats and tangles may incorporate the skin of the animal and lead to infection. They do tend to shed more heavily during the change of seasons and may require daily brushing during these times.
