The Pointer’s short, dense, glossy coat requires minimal maintenance. A weekly brushing with the Hertzko Bristle Brush or Pet Grooming Mitt & Fur Remover will help to remove dirt and loose hair and keep the dog looking his best. The ears should be regularly inspected and cleaned if needed with soft gauze and an ear-cleaning solution—your veterinarian can recommend a good brand to use. The nails should be trimmed often if not worn down naturally, as overly long nails can cause the dog discomfort and problems walking and running. Use either the Hertzko Professional Nail Clipper & Trimmer or Hertzko Electric Pet Nail Grinder.
