Weltador Breed Maintenance
Maintaining the Weltador breed can vary, and again this depends on the characteristics. While the Welsh Terrier tends to shed only on a seasonal basis but has wiry, long hair, even though the coat of a Labrador is short, they tend to shed regularly. Brushing daily is recommended due to the double coats and shedding level of the Labrador. A deshedding brush, a pin brush, or a slicker brush may be used, depending on the type of coat that your Weltador develops. Both parent breeds are prone to ear problems, so make sure that the ears of your Weltador are cleaned regularly and dried correctly after bathing. They should also have regular ear checks. Bathing is recommended for both breeds – once every 1 to 2 months should suffice. Labradors can be quite sensitive to food, as bloating is common, so high quality food, served over several small meals throughout the day (rather than one big meal) is best for this breed. Keep your Weltador’s nails trimmed and remember that teeth for this breed should also be brushed daily, to avoid tartar build up. In order to keep your Weltador healthy, exercise regularly, and ensure you spend time training and playing too, to prevent boredom.
