Stabyhoun Breed Maintenance
The Stabyhoun has a medium-length coat that is weather-resistant and pretty much dirt resistant. By keeping him brushed at least once a week, dirt and loose hairs will be removed. He should be brushed with a pin brush and metal comb to work out any tangles that may form in his feathering. Bathing is only necessary about two times a year or as needed if he gets into something really foul. He does shed seasonally, so he will have two times a year when he is shedding heavily. This is because his undercoat is being released. Brushing daily is required when he is shedding his undercoat. His nails need to be trimmed as needed, usually every two to three weeks. His ears will need to be checked weekly and cleaned as needed. A routine dental plan should also be put in place. Brush his teeth weekly with canine approved toothpaste. He may also benefit from a professional teeth cleaning once a year.
