Peagle Breed Maintenance
The Peagle's level of maintenance largely depends on the traits he inherits from his parent breeds. Most Peagles have short hair; however, one should be prepared for medium-length hair as well. Experts indicate that Peagle owners can expect either moderate or high levels of grooming.
Regardless of hair length, he will need to be brushed daily to rid his coat of excess hair. Bathe him only when necessary. The natural oils of his coat will keep his fur looking shiny and healthy. Because the Peagle is prone to tear stains under his eyes, you will need to wipe this area regularly to remove any discharge from his eyes. Expect the Peagle to shed a great deal. Brush his teeth two or three times a week in order to prevent tartar build-up and bad breath. However, if you want to prevent tooth decay, brush his teeth daily. Trim his nails (should they not wear down on their own) every two or three weeks. A good rule of thumb is if you can hear his nails clicking on the floor, it is time to trim the nails.
