Rhodesian Labrador Breed Maintenance
Easy care and minimal maintenance are the key words here. The Rhodesian Labradors are moderate shedding dogs, and one thorough brushing each week with a stiff bristle brush will remove any shed hair and produce a sheen on their sleek coat. Some dogs may inherit the double coat of the Labrador, in which case they may require more frequent brushing. Professional groomers won't be needed for this dog unless you want them to trim your dog's nails. These dogs can suffer from ear infections due to having floppy ears that can create a moist warm environment for bacteria. Gently clean out their ears each week, and dry them with a soft cloth afterwards. Bad smelling ears are the sign of a bad infection. Bathing is only required when they are really dirty, and be sure to use a gentle dog shampoo which will not harm their skin. After all this, a thorough teeth brush plus a bit of a cuddle and warm praise and your dog will be one happy dog.
Insuring your Rhodesian Labrador puppy as soon as “pawssible” is essential for preventing high vet care costs. Start comparing insurance plans from leading insurers like Healthy Paws and Embrace and save over $270 a year.
