Norwegian Buhund Breed Maintenance
The Norwegian Buhund has a dense or thick coat that is relatively easy to care for and should be brushed several times a week; when he is shedding heavily he will require daily brushing using a slicker brush or a natural bristle brush and a comb. A deshedder may also be beneficial when he is shedding heavily. He does tend to shed year round so do expect to have hairs on your furniture and clothing if you do not keep him brushed regularly to remove any loose or dead hairs. He generally does not require constant bathing as he does not have a strong doggy smell. Trim his nails every two to three weeks when they begin getting too long. His ears should be checked weekly and cleaned when necessary. The hair between his paw pads should be trimmed to keep him from tracking dirt or debris into the home and to keep snow or mud from balling up between his pads and causing discomfort.
