  • Care

    The short and dense coat of the Rat Terrier needs very little grooming to stay in good shape. A weekly sweep with a soft brush or hound glove should work well. Rat Terriers shed seasonally. A rubber brush or shedding tool will help during those times. About once a month, your Rat Terrier will likely need a bath and nail trim. Also, check your Rat Terrier's ears weekly to remove wax buildup or debris. Daily teeth brushing is also a good habit to maintain.
