Because the Central Asian Shepherd can either boast a tight, short and smooth coat or a long one, the good news is that neither require much in the way of grooming to keep things tidy. However, they do have quite a profuse undercoat which they shed throughout the year which means a weekly brush is essential to remove any dead or loose hair. Unlike other breeds, they shed more once a year and when they do, it is profusely. As such more frequent grooming would be necessary. The good news is that these large, handsome dogs do not need any sort of professional grooming.
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.
