If our dog is not given to wallow in muddy puddles, we can bathe him once or twice a month. Always using a special shampoo for dogs, since their PH is different from ours and if we use our soap it could irritate you or produce dandruff.

How and when to cut the nails of the Andalusian Winemaker
The Andalusian Bodeguero dog breed tends to have long nails that need to be cut if not wear them naturally. Dogs that play on asphalt or concrete naturally wear out their nails, but not field dogs.
We simply must cut them when they reach the ground and suppose a possible winemaker’s health problem. To cut them we must make sure where the nerve and blood vessels end, since they should never be cut flush with the leg.
Dog’s nails contain nerves and blood vessels practically up to half its length, so we should never exceed that measurement. If we have questions, we can ask our vet to teach us how to do it.

There are two ways to take care of the teeth of a Bodeguero Andaluz dog, through veterinary therapies to eliminate tartar caused by feeding our dog Winemaker when necessary and through the use of natural products that clean tartar by themselves.

to wait for their Bodeguero dog to accumulate some amount of tartar before taking him to the vet for cleaning, but this carries a number of risks:
- Bad breath
- Possibility of gum infections

Dog Grooming’s Anal Glands
We find it very funny to see how some dogs they drag their butts on the grass or the soil after defecating. Sometimes they do it simply to clean themselves, because they think that there are remains or it is dirty.
But many other times they do it because they are itchy, caused by the appearance of internal parasites or because her anal glands are full and they need to be emptied manually.
