Welsh Terrier Breed Maintenance
While this breed is already quite dashing, regular brushing and grooming will be required to help him stay that way. You can either groom the dog yourself at home, or spring for something special and have a professional groomer do the job. Keep in mind that if you are grooming your Welsh Terrier for shows, it will be a bit different than just grooming him as a regular pet. You may need to hand strip the coat as opposed to just brushing it; this may be easier with the help of a groomer. If you are brushing at home, try to brush your dog at least once a week to keep his skin and coat healthy and fresh. You can also use doggy safe toothpaste to clean your dog’s teeth weekly to remove any tartar buildup that could cause dental disease. Because the Welsh Terrier has folded over ears, it is important to check and clean them often. This is due to the fact that moisture lasts longer under the folded ears and can lead to irritations and infections. Frequent cleanings can help prevent any irritation from occurring. Besides brushing and regular grooming, keep your dog’s nails trimmed and his feet healthy.
