Westiepoo Breed Maintenance
Westiepoos are unlikely to shed very much, if at all. The Poodle is a non-shedding breed, while the Westie sheds only slightly. That said, it is important to brush your Westiepoo’s coat regularly, as they are prone to matting, particularly around the eyes and ears. These areas may require trimming if the hair gets too dirty and tangled. Keeping your Westiepoo's hair clipped short will make it easier to care for. Because the long hair around their ears can trap dirt and moisture, it’s important to check your Westiepoo’s ears every week or so, for signs of irritation or inflammation. It’s good practice to brush your dog’s teeth once a week, though daily is ideal. Trim your Westiepoo’s nails about once a month, if you hear them clicking as they walk.
Insuring your Westiepoo puppy as soon as “pawssible” is essential for preventing high vet care costs. Start comparing insurance plans from leading insurers like Healthy Paws and Embrace and save over $270 a year.
