Constant brushing with a slicker and combing through with a medium toothed comb. When the coat is kept long, regular monthly appointments at the groomers may be required to keep the coat in good condition. A mild shampoo and a good conditioner is a popular asset, which many find helpful to deal with the knots and tangles and to prevent matting.

The entire coat can be scissored to a manageable length if it is not matted, or if the matts are removable.
The #7F or #5 blade is often used on the body. The legs are scissored to a tubular shape, or clipped down with the #5 blde. The feet should be scissored to a tidy finish.
