Dog Breeds

  • Catalan Sheepdog

    The Catalan Sheepdog is medium-sized with balanced proportions and a sweet, smiling face.

  • Group: Herding
    Lifespan: 12–14 yr
    Height: 17–19 in
    Weight: 37–55 lb

  • Care

    You should brush your Catalan Sheepdog's coat a few times a week to prevent mats and tangles. During seasonal shedding periods, you may need to brush daily to keep the hair under control (and off your sofa). Nail trims and ear cleanings are also important parts of any dog's grooming routine. Lastly, make sure you keep your pup on a life-long dental care program that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings.

    Since all dogs are at risk for obesity if they eat too many calories, carefully monitor the amount of food you give your pup. Portion out their meals with a measuring cup to prevent overfeeding, and limit treats to no more than 10% of their calories.

  • Disorders

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
