How Often to Groom Your Affenpinscher
Dogs with short coats normally require less brushing and grooming contrasted to dogs with medium to long haired coats as these longer coats can get tangles, mats and debris trapped in them more easily.
Some very short-haired dogs may not need conventional 'brushing' and for these dogs, owners may rather like to try a soft grooming glove to carefully remove loose hair, occasionally.
Canines should be brushed 'as required'. Owners should observe the condition of their dog's coat, looking for any tangles/mats or dullness which indicates they might need a brush. Grooming can take anything from a few minutes to a number of hours a week depending on your type of dog.
The affenpinscher lives up to its name — "monkey terrier" — in both looks and actions. A terrier at heart, it is busy, inquisitive, bold and stubborn, but it also loves to monkey around, being playful and mischievous. It tends to bark and even climb. Unlike most terriers, it is fairly good with other dogs and pets. This little dog is best with a family that likes entertainment and has a very good sense of humor.
