Wel-Chon Breed Maintenance
Given their abundance of fur, you may be surprised to learn that the Wel-Chon is actually a low shedding breed and therefore great choice for anyone who suffers from allergies. However, their thick coat will require weekly brushing to ensure that it does not become tangled and matted. Welsh Terriers are a breed that sweats, meaning their coat can become smelly – it’s possible that Wel-Chons are the same way. You’ll know it’s bath time when your dog becomes odorous. Take care when using scented shampoos though, as this dog may have sensitive skin and skin allergies. Bichon Frises have a thick curly coat that never stops growing; if your Wel-Chon inherits this coat, expect to take your pup to the groomer every 6 to 8 weeks. Check your Wel-Chons ears every week or so for signs of irritation, sometimes dirt may become trapped in their fur and cause ear infections. If your pup’s ears are dirty, simply wipe them clean with a warm, wet cloth. Trim your dog’s nails about once a month and brush its teeth weekly to prevent dental diseases.
