Ratonero Bodeguero Andaluz Breed Maintenance
The grooming needs of this particular breed are fairly
undemanding as they have a short, smooth coat that naturally sheds dirt and
dust. They do require brushing with a slicker brush or grooming glove once or
twice a week to control their moderate, year-round shedding, although the
tendency to shed can also be diminished somewhat by adding fish oil to their diet,
a supplement which leaves this little dog’s coat particularly shiny and supple.
Their ears should be cleaned frequently as they have a tendency to trap dirt
and if these dogs are used for their original
purpose both their ears and tails should be checked daily for scratches
and bites from rodents. It is also important to
keep an eye on the amount of food that you offer this breed as they are prone to obesity due to overeating.
