Rottaf Breed Maintenance
The Rottaf will, surprisingly, not require much in the way of maintenance. Brushing him once weekly should be sufficient for getting rid of any excess hair. However, he may tend to shed more in the spring and fall (as do most dogs). During heavy shed times, brush him two or three times a week. Note: It is also important to get the Rotaff used to a grooming routine. While the Afghan parent breed is accustomed to grooming, the Rottweiler can be rather sensitive to touch. Begin a grooming routine when your Rotaff is young so that he will be comfortable with the regimen as he grows older. Brush his teeth two or three times a week to prevent bad breath and tartar buildup. To prevent tooth decay, brush his teeth daily. Trim his nails every two or three weeks, particularly if you can hear his nails clicking as he walks.
