Wetterhoun Breed Maintenance
While the dense, curly coat of this breed may look like it is a lot of work, it is generally a pretty simple coat to keep clean and healthy. The fur has a coarse, slightly greasy feel due to the oils that are required to make this coat somewhat water resistant and this canine should only be washed a few times a year as frequent bathing can strip the coat of these oils and cause it to become woolly and brittle. The coat isn’t particularly prone to tangling and sheds only moderately, so brushing is only really needed once or twice a week, although it is important to check on a regular basis to ensure that their ears are clean, dry, and free of infection. The teeth should be brushed a few times a week; start this routine early so that your dog does not balk at the procedure.
