Transylvanian Hound Breed Maintenance
The Transylvanian Hound does not require a lot of maintenance unless he is being shown in conformation shows, then he does require a more intensive grooming regime. Even though the Transylvanian Hound has a double coat, he does not shed much except twice a year. Brush him weekly with a natural bristle brush or a soft slicker brush to remove any dead hairs. When he is shedding, bathe him using a mild shampoo to hasten the shedding process. It is best to over-bathe or the natural coarseness of his coat could be compromised. If you notice a strong doggy smell, a dry shampoo may be used and then rub him down with a soft cloth. He will smell better and his coat will shine. Because he has hanging ears, check them weekly for dirt or moisture and clean them as needed. His toenails should naturally wear if he is being used for hunting over rough terrain, otherwise check them every few weeks and trim as needed.
