The Braque d’Auvergne has a close, tight and smooth coat which means they are low maintenance when it comes to keeping things tidy. A weekly brush is all it takes to remove any dead or shed hair from their coats. A weekly wipe over with a chamois leather helps keep their coats glossy too. As with other breeds, they tend to shed the most during the Spring and then again in the Autumn when more frequent brushing is typically necessary.
It’s also important to check a dog’s ears on a regular basis and to clean them when necessary. If too much wax is allowed to build up in a dog’s ears, it can lead to a painful infection which can be hard to clear up. In short, prevention is often easier than cure when it comes to ear infections.
