Rattle Griffon Breed Maintenance
The maintenance of your Rattle Griffon will depend on the coat that he inherits. Should your Rattle inherit a coat like that of the Rat Terrier, it will be easy to brush, and you can anticipate moderate, ongoing shedding. Daily brushing will help you to keep your furniture and home neat. Your Rattle Griffon may inherit a rough or smooth coat from his Brussels Griffon parent. The rough coat can be maintained by brushing your dog three times per week and stripping the coat every three months. The smooth coat will require weekly brushing. Regardless of his coat, your dog should only be bathed as needed. As with all dogs, you will want to brush the teeth of your Rattle Griffon several times per week; many small breeds are more likely to develop gum disease and tooth brushing is an important step to maintain your dog’s long term dental health.
