  • Care

    Laikas are naturally clean dogs, so they don’t generally need baths. But their thick coats do require regular brushing to remove loose hair and prevent mats and tangles. Most of the year, brushing with a pin brush once or twice a week will suffice. But during seasonal shedding periods, daily brushing is best. Beyond that, your Laika's grooming routine should include regular nail trims, ear cleanings, and dental care.
