Welsh Hound Breed Maintenance
The Welsh Hound does have a dense coat that will shed, this means they are not a hypoallergenic breed and do require regular grooming to keep their coats healthy. Their coat does require weekly brushing using a slicker brush or even a natural bristle brush. A metal comb may be needed to remove any tangles from their medium length coat. They shed seasonally, during these times be sure to brush them more often to keep hairs from collecting around the house. They do have a harsh coat that should repel dirt so they should not need to be bathed often. When bathing, be sure to use a shampoo that is for harsh coats and do not over-condition their coat, this will soften the coat too much. Being a hound with hanging ears be sure to clean their ears weekly. Dry their ears thoroughly to ensure no infection can start. Trim the hair between the pads of their feet and clip their nails as needed.
