Old Danish Pointer Breed Maintenance
The maintenance of the Old Danish Pointer is relatively easy; he needs minimal grooming and it usually only takes about 30 minutes each week to brush him. When grooming, he will need a slicker brush and metal comb. Since his coat is so harsh, it is weather resistant and should only need bathed a few times each year. When you are bathing him, be sure to use a mild shampoo specially formulated for harsh coats. Using the wrong shampoo can cause skin irritation or even coat damage. While the Old Danish Pointer is not technically classified as a hypoallergenic breed, those not suffering from extreme allergies can be around them with minimal problems. Be sure to check his ears weekly and clean when necessary. His toenails should be trimmed as needed. Set up a routine dental plan that includes professional teeth cleanings to keep his teeth and gums healthy.
