Slovensky Cuvac Breed Maintenance
The Slovensky Cuvac is generally a low maintenance dog. He does need to be groomed weekly using a pin brush and metal comb to ensure his coat is kept healthy. He is a seasonal shedder and shedding will be very heavy twice a year. During this time, he requires daily brushing and warm baths every week while he is shedding. When bathing him, use a whitening shampoo to brighten his coat. Warm baths will help loosen the hair that is shedding and hasten the process. His undercoat is like wool and it does take a long time to brush through. Plan on grooming him for several hours each day until all the shedding is finished. Trim his nails as needed and also the hair between his foot pads. Check his ears weekly and clean them as needed to prevent infection. Set up a routine dental plan to ensure he has healthy teeth and gums. Start brushing his teeth at a young age to ensure he readily accepts his teeth being cleaned.
