  • Care

    The German Wirehaired Pointer's grooming needs are relatively low-maintenance. Weekly brushing with a comb and soft slicker brush is usually enough to keep their coats free of loose hair and dirt. You should clip your dog's nails regularly to keep them short and tidy. Overgrown nails can split and become painful, or lead to issues walking or running. In addition to professional dental cleanings, aim to establish an at-home dental care routine that includes regular teeth brushing. Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for the overall long-term health of all dogs.

    Keep them at a healthy weight by monitoring their food intake and measuring out meals. And don't forget to account for treats in their daily calorie totals. As a guideline, treats should make up no more than 10% of a dog's calories.
