Patterjack Breed Maintenance
The Patterjack is relatively easy to maintain. Their dense thick short coats require a brushing every two or three days to keep it slick, with an occasional combing to rid any shedding hair. These dogs may need more bathing than some other companion dogs, due to their working nature and their tendency to dig. Just don't overdo it as it could strip the natural oil from the coat which will reduce the effectiveness of that weatherproof coat. While brushing, check for any cuts or sores that may be on their body and treat if needed. Also check their feet for injury and clip the nails when required. Ears are another area that can accumulate dirt and oil, so gently wipe the inner ear out with a damp soft cloth, drying it carefully after you have finished. Twice a week or more, brush your dogs teeth to ensure a sweet breath.
Patterjacks often suffer from patellar luxation, glaucoma, and other potentially serious health conditions. Secure pet health insurance today to avoid high veterinary care costs.
