Keep the dog clean. Every day, comb the hair with a sparse comb, and smooth-haired dogs with a stiff hair brush. At the same time, dirt and dust are removed, as well as dead hair (they renew themselves twice a year). A dog should be washed rarely, once every 35-45 days, and not with soap, because it washes away the protective grease film on the skin; therefore, the animal’s hair loses its luster, the hair becomes brittle, worse retain heat. In addition, itching, scratching, and, as a result, skin diseases can appear.

It is best to use zoo shampoo or foam of diluted Baby Soap. During bathing, in order to avoid water getting into the ears, cotton swabs soaked in cream should be inserted into the ear canal. If necessary (from souring, inflammation), the eyes should be washed with a 2-3% solution of boric acid (1 hour spoon in a glass of boiled water). Once a week, it is recommended to wipe your ears with a 10% solution of tannin alcohol. The claws of the puppy are trimmed as needed, but they are done very carefully so as not to injure the soft tissues of the paws and cause bleeding.
