Shorgi Breed Maintenance
These dogs are moderate shedders and the required brushing frequency will depend on which coat they develop. If the coat is long, it will be best to brush them daily; they will not need to be groomed as often if they have shorter fur. The Shorgi will only need to be bathed occasionally and not on a regular basis. Other needs include brushing the teeth two or three times a week, although it would be best if this were done every day. Daily tooth brushing will keep the teeth and gums clean and healthy. The nails will also need to be clipped once or twice a month. The exact frequency will vary from dog to dog, depending on how active they are and how quickly the nails wear down on their own. To prevent ear infections, you should wipe your dog’s ears clean once a week.
