Grooming

 

Grooming involves taking care of your Biewers Coat as well as its Health. You will want to start familiarizing your puppy at a early age to the equipment you will need to use. Whether you you are growing a beautiful Coat for show or prefer the puppy cut for convienience. A high quality diet is essential for a healthy dog and a coat of silk. Biewers have a single coat with no undercoat. Their hair is similar to human hair making them hypo-allergenic. Not every Biewer unfortunately will have a silky coat. A cotton coat will mat easily. Brushing daily will help manage tangles.                      

First you will need to use a good shampoo & conditioner, detangler, and bath your your Biewer every week or two depending on what kind of coat he has. Use a wide tooth metal comb and a good pin brush. Use your fingers as a detangler on mats. The ears should be cleaned with a good ear flush or powder.

The hair on the ears should be shaved 1/3 down from the tip, to keep the weight off the tip so they don't droop !

The pads of the feet need to be trimmed at least every two weeks. 

Teeth cleaning is very important for the health of your Biewer. There are numerous ways of keeping their teeth clean and breath fresh. From pet tooth brush's and paste's, to pre-treated pads and spray. You will also need to have them cleaned by your Veterinarian.

 

Toenails should be cut at least every two weeks. Cut them on a angle, at the curve, avoiding the fleshy part of the nail in order to keep them from bleeding.
