Spanish Mastiff Breed Maintenance
The Spanish Mastiff is not a hypoallergenic dog and he does shed seasonally due to his dense double coat. His coat does require weekly brushing to minimize loose hairs floating around the house. Use a pin brush and metal comb when grooming. A de-shedder can also be used when he is shedding heavily. Expect him to shed his undercoat twice a year, generally in the spring and fall. Bathe him when heavy shedding starts to help quicken the process. Trim the hair between his foot pads to keep knots from forming and debris from becoming trapped and causing lameness. His ears will need to be checked often for dirt or moisture and cleaned as needed. Check his nails every few weeks and trim as needed. The Spanish Mastiff does drool heavily. It is best to keep drool rags handy to clean up any drool that gets on floor, furniture or you. He will slobber excessively after exercise, eating or drinking.
