The coat of the Belgian Shepherd Laekenois is thick, rough and wavy, reddish in color, with hair on the tail and muzzle a little darker. One brush a week is enough to keep it clean and healthy. However, the breed changes its coat twice a year, and in these periods it is necessary to redouble attention to remove excesses. Bathing is indicated only when necessary.
The main care that the Belgian Shepherd Laekenois requires is a high amount of physical exercise daily, to stay balanced and healthy. This breed can suffer from anxiety and other health problems if they accumulate too much energy.
