Black Mouth Curs have short, dense fur, which only requires occasional grooming. As their coat is so thick, they have higher dander production levels as well. For this reason, these are not considered hypoallergenic dogs.
During warmer months, the daily grooming routine of these dogs consists only of looking through their fur for shedding, matting, and dirt. Make sure you also check their paws and ears for any cuts to avoid infections.
Usually, brushing through their hair twice a week is more than enough. Bathing should be applied once a month or more frequently if needed. During winter, they require even less grooming, and they should be given baths if their fur becomes too dirty.
Do Black Mouth Curs Shed?
Black Mouth Curs usually shed during the spring and summer, and even then, their shedding is easily manageable. As they like to spend much of their time outdoors, you won’t have to worry about them leaving fur on all the surfaces of your home.
Additionally, you can simply cut the bottom layer of their coat with a Furminator Undercoat Tool on a regular basis. This way, you will get rid of the excess hair and even keep the dogs inside if needed, plus, you will save time on brushing and bathing.
It’s recommended to wash your dog with products specifically designed for dogs, like the Pro Pet Works All Natural 5 In 1 Oatmeal Shampoo to avoid excess dander shedding as well. It helps reduce any irritations, and because it also contains conditioner, it requires less rinsing and fussing during bath time.
