Wheatador Breed Maintenance
Both the Wheaten Terrier and the Labrador Retriever are relatively low maintenance breeds, and the same can be said for the Wheatador. Some of them may inherit the wavy locks of their Wheaten parents, in which case weekly brushing is recommended to avoid matting. Regular brushing will also help reduce the amount of shedding. Using a comb rather than a brush will help wavy coats (like that of the Wheaten) stay smooth and soft rather than frizzy. Wheaten Terriers are notorious for having sensitive skin, so it’s best to shampoo only as needed in case the Wheatador has inherited this trait as well. They are not hypoallergenic, and they are mild to moderate shedders. Wheaten Terriers are allergic to fleas, and it’s possible that Wheatadors may inherit this trait as well, so be sure to take precautions against fleas. Some Wheatadors may inherit the Wheaten's under the chin beard or the long hair hanging over their eyes, in which case they will require a little bit of extra grooming attention to keep these sections clean.
