Norwegian Lundehund Breed Maintenance
The Norwegian Lundehund has a dense undercoat that does shed heavily twice a year. Aside from the heavy seasonal shedding, he will also shed small amounts daily. His coat will get on your furniture and clothes so keep a lint roller handy! By brushing him at least once a week, you will remove loose hair, redistribute oils on the skin for healthy coat and skin and keep it clean. If you are not fond of the shedding, you can brush him more often to remove more of the loose hairs. During the spring and fall it is recommended to brush him daily to keep the shedding under control. He will require his nails to be trimmed as needed, usually every 2 to 3 weeks. Some Norwegian Lundehunds do not like to have their nails trimmed. Your veterinarian can trim his nails if needed. The tufts of hair between his toes can be trimmed to keep him from tracking more dirt and debris into the house. His ears need cleaned weekly to remove dirt and moisture. The Norwegian Lundehund needs a dental plan set in place to ensure that he has healthy teeth and gums.
