Sloughi Breed Maintenance
The grooming requirements for this breed are exceedingly simple. A simple rub down with a soft towel or soft brush will remove excess hair and keep them looking neat and tidy. This dog is generally considered to be a fairly clean breed and only requires occasional bathing. The dog hair on the Sloughi breed dog is very thin and in some cases, may not provide adequate protection from the sun’s rays, particularly for dogs with light colored fur, and in these cases, canine sunscreen should be utilized in order to protect the dog from developing skin cancer from exposure to the UV rays. Sloughi skin is thinner than the skin of most dog breeds, but it is not overly sensitive, so while specialty shampoos may not be required, care should be taken not to chafe the skin when drying your Sloughi dog off. These dogs are bred to hunt and chase, and they typically need a great deal of vigorous exercise in order to keep them fit and healthy.
