Australian Shepherd Care (Aussie)
Caring for an Australian Shepherd has features that need to be considered.
At least 3 times a week, the wool of the Australian Shepherd is combed out, otherwise you will tirelessly collect wool from clothes and furniture. In addition, in the absence of proper care, the wool of the Australian Shepherd is knocked into wolves, disposal of which will be quite problematic.
During molting, daily combing is mandatory.
Before combing, you can spray Aussie wool with water so that the hair does not break.
Get tools for the care of the Australian Shepherd’s hair: a comb (large teeth), a brush, a pusherka or furminator, and a comb.
But bathing the Australian Shepherd should not be frequent: the structure of the coat is such that these dogs dry for a very long time, and this can cause the development of a fungal disease.
The Australian Shepherd needs long walks with active games. However, this can be a plus - the claws in this case most often grind naturally. But if this does not happen, the claws are cut with a nail clipper.
Inspect the Australian Shepherd every day for injuries, cuts and other injuries - these dogs are not inclined to take care of themselves.
2 times a week check the Aussie ears and, if necessary, clean them with special lotions (hypoallergenic).
The eyes of the Australian Shepherd also need grooming. Healthy eyes are clean, without crusts, sores and irritations. After work, Aussies wipe their eyes with a clean, dampened cloth.
To protect the Australian Shepherd’s teeth from tartar and plaque, offer her special bones or brush her teeth with a special toothpaste and brush.
