Wire Toy Fox Terriers have a
dense coat and shed moderately, therefore it is recommended to brush your hybrid frequently. Combing her hair every other day using a bristle brush will help
eliminate any loose fur and prevent tangles and mats from forming. She is not smelly,
so bathe her occasionally using a hypoallergenic dog shampoo to prevent
irritating her skin. Since she has delicate skin and is prone to demodectic mange, check her skin often and take her to the veterinarian in case you find any redness or irritation. Clean her ears weekly using a cotton ball and an
ear cleansing solution. Also, brush her teeth two or three times a
week, this will help to get rid of tartar buildup and bad breath. You may need to trim the hair around her ears, eyes, and paws to avoid obstructions and
infections, and clip her nails every month. Also, she might need a few yearly visits to a professional groomer, in order to keep her coat looking trim and smart.

Groom your Toy Fox Terrier
Our consulting dog groomer, Corryne Smith, suggests taking a Toy Fox Terrier to a professional up to 6 times a year but also thinks that most dog owners could groom this breed themselves if they choose to. With prices ranging from $25 to $35 for each visit to a salon, the annual cost will be between $0 and $210. Taking the dog to a professional groomer is the owner’s decision but could benefit the dog’s health and well-being.
