Papijack Breed Maintenance
Considering the needs of the parent breeds, these tiny hybrid dogs will have a moderate maintenance level. Looking first at the Papillon, we know that their coat will need to be brushed and combed daily as well as bathed as needed. The Jack Russell Terrier has very easy to groom fur that needs regular brushing and bathing. The rough coat variety will need to be stripped, as well as any dog who wants to participate in shows. Other needs include teeth brushing and nail clipping. Keeping your dog’s teeth and gums healthy is easy, as long as you brush them at least two to three times every week or, even better, every day. Nail clipping will be needed around once or twice a month. This is the average, and if a dog is more or less active than most it will affect how often they will need to be clipped. Ear infections are also a concern for dog owners. However, they can be avoided if the owner cleans and checks the pet’s ears at least once a week.
