With its origins, the Pomsky is a dog whose hair loss is intense during the moulting period which generally takes place in spring and autumn . If it only requires weekly brushing in normal times to maintain and ventilate its coat, daily brushing is necessary during the moulting period .

As dog hygiene is closely linked to its health , it is important not to overuse the baths . Dogs with double coats like the Pomsky suffer from excessive hygiene. Combined with regular brushing , a few shampoos per year (1 or 2) will be enough to keep your dog’s coat clean and odorless .
