Toy Fox Pinscher Breed Maintenance
The Toy Fox Pinscher can be maintained easily and requires brushing just once per week to remove any dead hair from the coat. A healthy dog has a shiny coat, and this can be maintained by ensuring the coat is cleaned by wiping, before brushing. Brushing can be with a pin brush, a slicker brush or a comb, but shedding is moderate with this breed. It is not recommended that you regularly shampoo this breed’s coat, due to it being sparse and thin. The thin coat means that this dog does not do well in cold climates, but it also does not like climates that are too hot either. Their nails should be clipped regularly to keep their small paws in a healthy condition. The Toy Fox Pinscher should have its teeth regularly brushed as both parent breeds are known to have dental problems if their teeth are not cared for appropriately. Denta-bones can be used to minimize the build up of tartar. 1 cup of dry food, split into two meals each day is suggested for this breed, but due to a range of allergies that could be inherited by the Toy Fox Terrier parent breed, it is suggested that high quality food is provided. This kind of dog will suit an apartment building providing they are still well exercised to burn off those energy levels.
