Styrian Coarse Haired Hound Breed Maintenance
The Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound requires weekly grooming to keep their coat in good, healthy condition. The grooming regimen for a Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound being conditioned for show will be more intensive and require much more time. Generally, they will need to be brushed using a firm bristle brush that has closely spaced, short bristles or a slicker brush and brush with the coat’s grain. Be sure to brush their coat thoroughly after they have been hunting in case they have picked up burrs or small twigs in their coat. The Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound does not need to be bathed often, but when they do be sure to use a shampoo that is specifically formulated for wire coats. Their ears do hang, making them more prone to ear infections. Clean their ears weekly to prevent infections from setting in. Set up a dental plan to ensure their teeth are kept clean and free of disease. A yearly professional cleaning is also a good idea. Check their nails each week and trim them as needed.
