Slovensky Kopov Breed Maintenance
The Slovensky Kopov does not require extensive grooming. Since his coat is short, you do not have to worry about tangles or matting. He does need to be brushed with a slicker brush once or twice a week to keep his coat shiny and healthy. After brushing him with a slicker brush, take a damp cloth and wipe down his coat. He will shed his undercoat twice a year and during that time he does need to be brushed more often. It is always recommended that he be bathed after every hunting trip and his coat is checked for any external parasites such as fleas or ticks. Since he has hanging ears, be sure to check them weekly and clean them as needed to prevent dirt or debris from building up and causing a problem. Keep a check on his toenails and have them trimmed as needed. Brush his teeth weekly and have them professionally cleaned once a year.
