We have to clean Schipperke’s coat every day, we have to comb it carefully, and we have to give the dog a bath regularly. The dog is very smart, easy to train and easy to raise. The specific grooming method is not that different from other small dogs.
When we choose canned dog food for Schipperke, we choose it based on what nutrients the dog needs. The high-priced ones use better materials, while the low-priced ones are mostly unmashed offal, which has the advantage that the vitamin content is less easy to lose and tastes better, while the disadvantages are more meat and the foul smell of defecation, if you eat it too long, you’ll get dental calculus. Dry Food is not as tasty as canned food, but it is easy to digest and absorb, and the stool does not smell so bad.
If the Schipperke gets hurt and bleeds, we should immediately apply pressure to the wound to prevent it from bleeding again. We can apply pressure to the wound with an absorbent material such as gauze, towels, or clothing for at least five minutes. If the Schipperke continues to bleed, we do not let go, and immediately notify the veterinarian. If necessary, we can use a tourniquet to bind the wound. However, to avoid tightening the wound, we can try to place a finger between the tourniquet and the muscle to make sure it is not too tight. In addition, every 10 to 15 minutes we need to relax the tourniquet for about 30 seconds while you apply pressure to the wound.
Schipperke likes children, is the children’s best playmate, gentle character, strong tolerance, known as the “best indoor dog” , very suitable for human family breeding.
Many Schipperkes have lactose intolerance. If your dog develops diarrhea, dehydration, or skin irritation after drinking milk, we should stop feeding him milk. It should also be noted that although dogs hunt animals in the wild, their immune systems can not adapt to the artificial breeding of poultry and meat. So, we should try not to give these things to dogs.
