Grooming

Boxer dogs - Boxer dog grooming

Grooming although not essential every day, does alert you to any skin conditions in their early stages.The Boxer’s smooth, shorthaired coat is pretty much self-cleaning and is therefore easy to groom, you just need a firm bristle brush.  Don’t bathe your dog too often, as with all hair too much washing removes the natural oils. You will notice that your Boxer does groom itself, but as with all lively breeds they will need the occasional bath when their exuberance involves rolling in something not so nice!  With the shorthair they do lose some coat and are pretty much average as far as shedding is concerned.
