  • Care

    In general, Large Münsterlanders only need occasional brushing and bathing to keep their coats clean and healthy. However, their long hair attracts burs, which must be picked off after a day spent hunting in thick cover. The Large Münsterlander's nails will wear down during daily activity. But you should still inspect them regularly for splits or cracks, and trim them as needed to maintain an ideal length. Maintaining good dental hygiene is also important for the overall long-term health of all dogs. In addition to professional dental cleanings, Large Münsterlanders need a regular at-home dental care routine that includes teeth brushing and dental chews or treats.

    To prevent your dog from becoming overweight, keep a close eye on their food portions. And be sure to take treats into account when tracking their daily calorie intake. As a guideline, treats should make up no more than 10% of a dog's calories.

  • Disorders

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