Russian Harlequin Hound Breed Maintenance
This breed has fairly simple grooming requirements. Bathing should only be done on an occasional basis to avoid stripping the natural, protective oils from their coats and the Russian Harlequin Hound is more prone than some other breeds to skin allergies. Their coat sheds moderately and requires brushing once or twice a week. While the coat of this breed is short, it is also quite dense, which may make a slicker brush or grooming glove somewhat ineffective in removing the shed hairs. They also have long pendant ears, which should be checked regularly to ensure that they are clean, dry, and free from infection.
