Though their corkscrew curls are natural, it takes effort to keep them looking good. Pumik coats are a mix of soft and harsh hair that must be combed out every three to six weeks, followed by a bath (or good soaking) to bring back the curls. A professional groomer can trim the curly coats to keep them looking neat. After a bath, let Pumik dry naturally to allow their trademark curls to form. Pumik also require regular ear cleanings, nail trims, and a dental care routine that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings.
Feed Pumik a high-quality dog food that is appropriate for their life stage (puppy, adult, senior). Consider a diet formulated for active breeds. Portion out their food with a measuring cup and limit treats to no more than 10 percent of their daily calories to avoid overfeeding.
