Rotterman Breed Maintenance
The Rotterman requires little maintenance for his well fitted tailored coat. A good brushing with a stiff bristle brush once a week is all that it requires when they are not in the shedding season, changing to daily brushing when shedding. The coat is naturally glossy and short, making easy work of grooming. It is a good time to check your dogs health, look for cuts or abrasions that may become infectious. Another area is the ears - dogs can suffer inflammation and infection within the ear, which often comes with a repulsive smell. If infection has set in, a trip to the veterinarian will be required to get medication to clear it up. But just gently cleaning the ears and drying them afterwards on a weekly basis will help prevent any other infections. Your Rotterman will need his teeth brushed two to three times a week, using a specialty dog product, and bathing is only needed when required. A slight clip of the toenails and your Rotterman will look as though he is ready for showtime!
