Sheltie Pug Breed Maintenance
You will need to brush your Sheltie Pug daily to prevent excessive shedding. You should also comb your dog thoroughly at least four or five times a week to keep their fur from getting matted if they have the Shetland Sheepdog undercoat. The hair between their ears and toes have a tendency to get tangled so you should pay special attention to these areas. You can bathe them as needed but not too often because it will dry out the skin. When bathing, be sure to wipe out your dog’s ears and check for redness and irritation. Your dog’s toenails should also be clipped as needed, about once a month. The teeth are an important part of the grooming routine as well; brush them several times a week for optimum dental health.
