Wool should be combed out once a week. During molting, it is better to comb the dog twice a week. In the pet shop you can find many types of brushes and mittens for smooth-haired dogs. These accessories will also help to collect wool from furniture and carpets.
After each walk, wash your pet's paws.
A smooth-haired fox terrier is not often bathed, only if necessary. A mild shampoo is used for washing.
The fox terrier dries for a long time, so avoid “bathing days” in cold weather or at night.
If necessary, trim the dog’s claws with a special claw cutter.
Brush your ears at least once a month.
Proper care of a smooth-haired fox-terrier is unthinkable without walking.
The first walk should take place no earlier than on the 15th day after re-vaccination. Duration - no more than 15 minutes. Gradually, the number of walks and their duration increases - at least up to 2 hours a day.
