Welshund Breed Maintenance
The Welshund is a difficult breed when it comes to maintenance. The Dachshund has different breed varieties including long, short, and wirehaired. The Welsh Terrier has a double coat and the top coat is long, dense and wiry. Depending on what variety of Dachshund the Welsh Terrier is mixed with, the coat texture, density and length can vary. The Welsh Terrier is quite high maintenance and requires regular brushing, daily if possible. The short haired Dachshund is easily maintained and requires minimal grooming with a slicker brush. The longer coat variations of the Dachshund, and the coat of the Welsh Terrier will require a de-shedder and comb also. If your Welshund has a longer coat, then you may wish to take your pet to the groomers as their coat may need to be stripped. Regular baths are suggested for both breeds. If your Welshund has a beard, moustache and bushy eyebrows like the Welsh Terrier, you will need to pay particular attention to those areas by wiping them clean, and grooming carefully. You also need to brush your Welshund’s teeth at least two or three times each week. Your dog will be healthy if you keep up regular exercise, and stimulate the mind through tricks. The nails of the Welshund should be clipped once per month to ensure that their paws are healthy for walking and exercise purposes.
