Segugio Italiano Breed Maintenance
The Segugio Italiano is an easy dog for maintenance, requiring only a good brushing once a week to care for their coat. They can come in both the short haired variety which is smooth, thick and shiny, or they can have coarse hair, which is harsh, dense and wiry. Brushing with a quality bristle brush will remove any loose hair from either coat. Hardy and resistant, this dog rarely needs a bath, as they take care of their health. If you do need to bathe them, it is advisable to use a gentle dog shampoo. This product will protect the natural oils in their coat which protect them from the weather elements. Check inside the ears often to prevent a build up of wax or debris from causing inflammation, cleaning them with a soft damp cloth. Usually, this dog's active life takes care of their long toenails, which are often worn down rather than cut. But they will need help keeping those teeth healthy and white, so train them from a young age to accept teeth brushing as just a part of life. The Segugio Italiano is an active dog that requires a lot of exercise and loves to run and roam. Regular exercise on a daily basis is imperative to keep this dog happy and healthy.
