Petit Bleu de Gascogne Breed Maintenance
Petit Bleu de Gascognes are generally considered a low maintenance breed as their coats take brushing only a couple times a week at most unless in higher shedding seasons. A firm bristle or slicker brush should work just fine to help them keep their coats free of loose hair, dirt, and other debris. Bathing is rarely a necessity unless they get into something particularly smelly or dirty and otherwise needs to be done only every month at most. Their ears are definitely the greatest point of concern, as their combination of size and folded style create an ideal environment for excess buildups of wax and moisture which can potentially cause ear infections, a relatively common issue in the breed. Because of it, owners should regularly check and clean their dog's ears, especially if they are outside in high humidity or around water, where their chances of collecting additional moisture are highest. Outside of that, the rest of their care is quite simple. Like any other breed, they need their nails checked and trimmed regularly to prevent any complications with cracking or breaking, and their teeth should be brushed on a weekly basis if not more often, to help them maintain good oral health.
