Miniature Pinschers are moderate shedders. Their shedding level can be lowered with frequent brushing.


The Min Pin's short coat is easy to maintain. A weekly comb with a soft bristled brush will keep their coats healthy and shiny. Their nails should also be trimmed regularly, as long nails can cause discomfort.
