• Belgian Sheepdog

  • Care

    Although Belgian Sheepdogs have long hair, the breed does not require extensive grooming. Brush their coats at least once per week to remove dead hair and prevent matting. Belgian Sheepdogs shed heavily during semi-annual “shedding seasons” and daily brushing is essential to remove all the dead hair. Baths are only required if Belgian Sheepdogs get into something messy. Clean their ears and trim their nails to prevent cracking, splitting, and painful overgrowths. Regular dental care that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings is also an essential part of their grooming routines.
