Schweenie Breed Maintenance
The Schweenie will need a moderate amount of maintenance. Brush him two or three times a week to remove excess hair. During the spring and fall, you may need to brush him daily to prevent excess hair all over your clothing and furniture. His floppy ears may require special attention from you. Wipe his ears out with a damp cotton ball once a week. Check for odors or redness; this is indicative of an ear infection. Brush his teeth two or three times a week to prevent the build-up of tartar; however, to prevent bad breath and tooth decay, brush his teeth daily. Trim his nails twice a month, unless he wears them down on his own. A good rule of thumb is if you can hear his nails clicking on the tile or hardwood floor, it is time to cut his nails. Start a grooming routine when he is young. Some dogs are sensitive to touch, and getting your dog used to this routine will be beneficial as he grows older.
Insuring your Schweenie 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.
