Plott Hound Breed Maintenance
The Plott Hound is not a hypoallergenic breed. His short coat is easy to maintain and he should be brushed occasionally, usually once a week or so, to remove loose or dead hairs. In the summer months, the Plott Hound can be brushed monthly rather than weekly unless you notice his coat is loosing its shine. Frequent brushing helps keep his coat and skin healthy and remove dirt from his coat. He can be brushed with a slicker brush or a rubber curry brush. Since he is a hound with typical hound dog ears, be sure to clean his ears weekly and check for foul odors that can be a symptom of an ear infection. His nails will need to be clipped every two to three weeks depending on how quickly they grow. Do not over-bathe your Plott Hound, when necessary; bathe him using a mild shampoo. He does tend to drool and you will need to keep a slobber cloth close by to wipe his mouth.
