Norrbottenspets Breed Maintenance
Even though the Norrbottenspets has a dense double coat, he requires little grooming. He does shed his undercoat twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. During times of shedding, he will require more grooming. Routine grooming includes brushing with a slicker brush or a natural bristle brush once a week to remove any loose hairs and promote healthy coat and skin. The hair between his toes and paw pads should be trimmed regularly. Since the Norrbottenspets does not have a doggy smell, he does not require many baths throughout the year. He will need a warm bath when he begins his seasonal shedding. The only other times he may require a bath is when he rolls in something dirty or smelly. His nails should be kept trimmed and will require trimming every few weeks. Clean his ears weekly to avoid any possible infection. Set up a routine dental plan to ensure that his teeth and gums remain healthy.
