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.
