Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs have minimal grooming requirements. Regular brushing and an occasional bath are all it takes to keep them looking good. During semi-annual shedding seasons, daily brushing will help remove cast-off undercoat and minimize shedding. The breed has fast-growing nails that may need almost-weekly trimming to keep them from becoming overgrown and sharp. Like all breeds, Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs benefit from regular dental care. Start a routine that includes at-home teeth-brushing and professional cleanings to ensure good oral hygiene throughout their lives.
Feed Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs a high-quality dog food that is appropriate for their life stage (e.g., puppy, adult, senior) and consider a diet formulated for active breeds. Though these highly active dogs are not known for being overweight, it's still a good idea to portion out their food with a measuring cup and limit treats to no more than 10% of their daily calories to avoid overfeeding.
