Rottie Shepherd Breed Maintenance
A Rottie Shepherd is likely to shed quite a bit so will need brushing at least once or twice a week to get rid of loose hair and keep the coat shiny and healthy. If the coat is more like the German Shepherd parent breed, your dog may shed more and need a bit of extra brushing compared to a hybrid with the short Rottweiler coat which does not need as much. It is always a good idea to check your dog’s ears thoroughly and wipe them clean when necessary. Dental hygiene is also important and with a big breed like a Rottie Shepherd you will need to start early. If the nails aren’t worn down with exercise then trim them when needed.
