Spreagle Breed Maintenance
Your Spreagle hybrid falls into the moderate category of maintenance and shedding. His coat is not hypoallergenic. Since he's in the moderate shedding category, you should expect to need to brush him several times a week and probably increase your vacuuming frequency a bit. He won't need to be bathed unless he needs it due to accumulated dirt or doggy smell. He'll need to have his ears checked on a weekly basis, cleaning them as needed with a cotton ball and an approved canine ear wash. Be sure to check his toenails at least once a month, trimming them as needed unless he is able to keep them worn down with his normal exercise activities. He has a high tendency to hunt and wander, so be sure to keep him on leash for his own safety when he's outside the house, fenced yard or other safe enclosure. He can be a frequent barker; this could be an issue for those who live in noise restricted areas. He is an active canine who will need at least 2 hours per day of moderate exercise to keep him fit, healthy and happy.
