To avoid tangles in the Podengo Pequeño's wire coat, routine brushing followed by a quick combing should do the trick. For the smooth-coated variety, an occasional wipe-down with a damp cloth should be adequate. Neither type requires haircuts. Portuguese Podengos also need periodic baths and monthly nail trims. It's also a good habit to inspect your dog's ears frequently for wax buildup and debris. Finally, all dogs need dental care, which should include daily teeth brushing and occasional professional cleanings. Maintaining good dental hygiene is essential for your pup's overall health.
