One of the appealing characteristics of this breed is its appearance. We, the Affenpinscher Club of America, want to assist you in learning how to maintain your Affen’s coat, health, and overall condition. Grooming your Affen as your pet is simple, and with a minimum of interest, time, and your personal desire, can be done by you.

Perhaps by now this little “monkey dog” has found its way onto your chair, onto your couch or even into your bed. If so, you might enjoy its company more if your little friend is a bit cleaner, less smelly and doesn’t bring twigs and leaves with its beard and whiskers onto your pillow.

We’ve created this step-by-step guide for the pet Affen/owner/groomer.

Rules:

  1. Be Patient
  2. Be Persistent
  3. Be Patient
  4. Be Persistent

Okay, now that you have established who is the Alpha dog (that’s you), let’s proceed! For your convenience, we have created an illustrated grooming guide which you may view and/or save to print out. If you don't have the Adobe® reader already installed on your computer, you may download it for free.

 

When you are done, your Affen should look something like this one!
