  • Care

    The South Russian Ovcharka has a long coat that’s fairly demanding in terms of maintenance. They shed moderately between their high shedding season (traditionally in the spring), and require daily brushing and combing to keep their fur free of mats. They also have a tendency to get pretty dirty when playing outside, so the occasional bath is necessary. All dogs require regular dental care, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings, and the South Russian Ovcharka is no exception. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for their overall long-term health.
