Grooming and Care for your Wolf Dog

 

The Wolf Hybrid Dog needs lot of room to roam and run and they are active diggers, climbers and chewers. A fully fenced yard is a must with this hybrid dog and they do need to be kept on a leash when out of the fenced area. As with most hybrid dog types, the Wolfdog is naturally very healthy provided both parents were healthy. They do not do well in apartments and small spaces and tend to prefer being outdoors to indoors for long periods of time.

The Wolfdog will need routine grooming, especially in the spring and fall when the dense inner coat is shed. Starting them early with a regular brushing routine will help make this somewhat painles. Brushing has been universally acknowledged by expert dog groomers as the single most important step in grooming. 

The benefits of brushing are many. To name a few:

  • Better blood circulation
  • Shinier and healthier coat
  • Better bonding
Even if you know how crucial brushing is for your Dog's health and well-being, we all know that there is a right way and a wrong way of doing anything. And without doubt, you would like to do everything the RIGHT way when it comes to your Wolfdog.

Yes, there's a method to follow while brushing your Wolfdog. 

Here are FIVE steps to successfully brushing your Wolfdog that will prove to be extremely useful:
  • Brush against the growth of the hair first with a slicker brush and then with a medium or wide-toothed comb. 

  • The slicker brush removes all the loose hair and the comb takes care of the tangles.

  • Brush your Wolfdog along the hair growth and make sure you reach the skin as you brush his way.

  • Then use a flea comb over the coat to get the fleas and remove any remaining tangles. Part the coat and start from the root and then comb through.

  • If your Dog's paw pads are hairy, then clip them using electric clippers. Do not clip the hair in between the pads. Clip only the excess hair.
Brush your Dog's hairs to prevent it from matting. Matting can be a very painful experience.

Regular brushing untangles the matted hairs on your Dog's coat. Since this is a risky job to do, the best way out is to prevent them from forming in the first place. And doing this is simple: just brush and comb your Wolfdog regularly. If and when you see any mats or tangles, use a detangle solution and a medium-toothed comb.

Don't wait until your Wolfdog is dirty or matted to introduce him to grooming. That would make him associate the experience with unpleasantness. Moreover, many dogs learn to see their routine brushing as an alternate form of petting, i.e. another source of affection and attention.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Naturally able to stay outdoors they do make good pets for colder climates. The Wolf-Dog Hybrid is not suitable for a very hot climate unless appropriate measures are taken to provide a sheltered area for the animal to cool off and stay out of the direct sun.

Warning... Do not give your wolf hybrid puppies vaccines that contain leptospira bacterin.  Some dogs have a bad reaction to this vaccine and with wolf dogs it can be much worse.  Our vet said the reaction can be much worse than the disease.

We vaccinate out puppies at 6 weeks, 9 weeks, 12 weeks and 15 weeks old. When we ship puppies they are given their 9 weeks vaccine at 8 weeks old. Your puppies will have his/her's shot record with them when we ship.

 

Always talk to your vet if you have any health concerns about your pet. If you have general questions you can contact us anytime. By Email or phone (209) 487-5173
