Swedish Elkhound Breed Maintenance
Swedish Elkhounds are considered a moderate maintenance breed as they do shed a fair amount and need daily brushing to keep their coats clean, free of loose hair, and to prevent matting, which can happen if they're not properly maintained on a regular basis. Brushing with a slicker or a firm bristle brush usually does the trick, but a dematter can be used if matting starts or persists. They do not require regular bathing unless they get into something particularly dirty or offensive smelling and it's suggested to keep it to a minimum as it may disrupt the natural oils produced by their hair and skin. Otherwise, they really only need their nails checked and trimmed when necessary and their teeth brushed weekly.
