Telomian Breed Maintenance
The Telomian is a low maintenance dog. He requires a once a week brushing with a natural bristle brush to remove any loose or dead hair and keep his coat shiny and clean. Generally he only needs bathed when he develops a smell or gets dirty. Do not over bathe the Telomian or use harsh shampoos, this can cause the oils on his skin to be stripped away. When the oils are stripped away he can develop dry, itchy skin. Use a mild shampoo when he requires a bath. Since he was originally bred in the Malaysian jungles, he is most comfortable when his habitat has a similar climate, generally between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. He is an adaptable breed and can thrive in cooler climates as long as his family provides plenty of protection against the elements. Trim his nails as needed, usually every two to three weeks. Check his ears once a week and clean as needed. Also establish a dental plan that includes routine brushing and deep cleaning to ensure he has healthy gums and teeth.
