Swissy Saint Breed Maintenance
The Swissy Saint doesn't need to be groomed as much as a longhaired breed does, but occasional grooming is definitely necessary to keep him looking his best. This is the same with shampooing, especially if the dogs are used for working. Be prepared to do some extra cleaning when shedding season rolls around, as well as some extra brushing. The pin brush will be the best choice; it removes excess fur and eliminates tangles that may form. A deshedder can work well in times of heavy shed. Because of the shedding, they can't be considered hypoallergenic and, unlike the Saint Bernard, they aren't as prone to drooling so their mouth stays dry. Unless necessary, bathing can be taken care of every three to four weeks, at which time you can check to see if they need their nails trimmed.
