Tornjak Breed Maintenance
Because the Tornjak has such a long, dense coat it is best to brush him at least once a week using a pin brush and metal comb. A matt splitter may also be needed if his coat has become tangled or matted. A good de-tangler spray can also be used if he has tangles. Since he has a double coat, the Tornjak does shed seasonally and will require more care and grooming during times of intense shedding. Plan on grooming him every day when he is experiencing heavy shedding. When he is shedding, a de-shedder may be used when grooming. He should be bathed when he is shedding using warm water and a mild shampoo to help loosen the hair that needs to shed out. Since he is of Mastiff descent, the Tornjak does drool, although not as intensely as other Mastiff-type breeds. He does not have a typical doggy smell so should only need bathed a few times each year.
