Coat

Its long and voluminous coat, which covers almost the entire body, needs daily and laborious attention to maintain its beauty and silkiness. Prone to forming knots, the hair needs to be combed frequently and any tangles must be cut, careful combing also helps to keep the coat from breaking. If the dog usually walks in wooded areas, this care should be daily. Baths are usually every two months, with the use of a good canine shampoo.
