Teddy Roosevelt Terrier Breed Maintenance
The Teddy Roosevelt Terrier is a low maintenance dog that only requires grooming once a month unless he is being shown in conformation. Conditioning of his coat for conformation shows requires grooming weekly and bathing every four to six weeks. When brushing the Teddy Roosevelt Terrier a soft slicker brush or a firm bristle brush is necessary to remove any dirt and dead hairs. When bathing him, use a mild shampoo and be sure to dry him thoroughly before letting him go into the backyard. He will try to roll or wallow in the dirt after a bath. Trim his nails as needed, usually every few weeks. Use toenail clippers or even a nail grinder to keep his nails short and neat. He will need to have his teeth brushed as least once a week, however, two to three times a week is better to keep his teeth strong and healthy.
